Hi Arnold Huang,

  Well, there is no way your RAM can boost your graphics, or turn your raw RAM memory into some sort of graphics memory. It is probably already working much in its own job. Well, there is some sort of way that it can somehow improve the graphics of your system. Well, there is an option in your Bios called “AGP Aperture Size”. It is a reserved memory from your RAM which is intended for graphical processing. It is mostly used when your video card or your onboard graphics is already low in memory or is already running low. It is mostly configured at 64MB. Setting it up could improve your graphics; however, it steals memory which is intended for other use; thereby, slowing down your computer. You might as well leave it at that or suffer another consequence. The best thing to do is buy another GPU.

Hello Arnold.

Here are some ways that you can possibly improve your computer's graphics:

1.  Update your driver to the latest version.  Driver updates only fix bugs and stability issues but can also add performance improvements.  

2.  If your graphics card is an add-on card (PCI, AGP, or PCIe) then it is possible that it can be overclocked.  Check out overclocking utilities on the net.  Some graphics card manufacturers such as MSI or ASUS sometimes release overclocking utilities for their cards.

3.  If your graphics hardware is built-in to your motherboard, it is possible for you to share some more of your system RAM to it to increase its memory.  Refer to your motherboard user's manual to see if this is possible.

Take note though that the amount of memory of your graphics card is not the only deciding factor for graphics quality.  Most of it depends on the graphics capability of the GPU such as its architecture and core speed which is why overclocking oftentimes yields improvements better than additional memory can.
