So some applications and games have been running pretty slow lately when my pc should be able to easily handle them, most recently and annoyingly Saints Row: The Third. So i was thinking, since i have integrated graphics, AMD a10 6800k gpu, i should give more of my pc's RAM to it, one stick of 8gb G. Skill Ripjaws X 1866mhz, to have it less laggy. Thing is, how do i do it? For example, how can i make my pc dedicate more RAM to and prioritize Saints Row 3 when playing it so it'll run better and less laggy? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Games will take the RAM they need. Your performance problem comes from the fact that you only have 1 stick of RAM. You should buy 1 more identical stick. Having your RAM set in dual channel will help the APU access the RAM faster.
