Integrated graphics acting funky

I'm a gamer quite like a lot of other people but until I get myself a graphics card I have to use my integrated until further notice, so I decided to run tf2. I can run everything perfectly crisp and smooth 50+ frames then when I launch an intense game at low settings or high I can barely play it? At first I thought the integrated graphics couldn't handle it but tf2 to run on high requires 1024MB (As recommended by Valve). Why can I not run the more intensive games (Arma 3 on low recommended 512MB)?

Most, if not all IGPs, cannot play a gaming like Arma 3 at all, as they are below minimum requirements.
IGPs are pretty much bits and pieces of a graphics card allowing the CPU to run something that requires graphics. I would suggest holding off until you get a proper graphics card.

Hi,
Onboard video will always have trouble medium to high on recent games. You are lucky you can get anything running even on low settings.

The video recommendation is only on dedicated video card not onboard because it won't cut it.

Theres way WAY WAAAAAAAYYYY more into graphics then just the memory.

You just need to get a discrete card to play certain games thats really all there is to it. Try lowering your resolution / settings for playable frame rates for now.
