I'm having an issues with my laptop's RAM and video memory. I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series (AMD A8-7410 APU w/ AMD Radeon R5 Graphics @ 2.20GHz). I have 6gb of RAM (DDR3L SDRAM @1600, about 5gb usable) but I need a minimum of 8. I have 1gb of video memory but I need a minimum of 2. My goal is to reach or exceed these figures so that I am able to play some games on my laptop. Is it possible to reach these specs with this laptop?

Keep in mind you won't get much of a speed boost, the core hardware is still the same speed, that is probably 90% of the speed. Dual channel RAM can increase video speed in shared memory systems but not by a huge amount.
