I'm very familiar with computers and i fix them as a side job with my father but im puzzled as to i havent really dealt with integrated graphics cards before. So the basis of what i know is that it shares the RAM and uses it as video memory, now i have these specs for my Toshiba laptop:
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit),3.25 hours of battery life
AMD Phenom II Quad Core Mobile Processor P940,500GB HDD (5400rpm),4GB DDR3 1066MHz memory
DVD-SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash drive
HD TruBrite LED Backlit display
No Bluetooth (No Antenna)
65W (19V 3.42A) Auto-sensing 100-240V / 50-60Hz input
Li-Ion (48Wh 6-Cell)|Up to 3.25 hours
3-USB (2.0) 1-eSATA/USB (2.0) combo port with Sleep and Charge
10/100 Ethernet LAN
Wi-Fi Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n)
harman/kardon stereo speakers Headphone jack (stereo) Microphone input port with Sleep and Music Built-in microphone
Webcam and microphone built into LCD bezel
256MB-1917MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory


Now if i upgrade to 8gb DDR3, i have a couple of questions. I see im using about 2/3rds of memory just doing basics and i want to do gaming like starcraft 2, not HEAVY just light gaming. So if i upgraded to 8gb my video memory would take its max and id have more free room to play with RAM alone. Get what im saying? Thanks for all who respond!
