Hi

As you are aware an APU takes some RAM for the graphics.

I have recently got a graphics card which works perfectly but the APU still takes RAM for the APU... Anyway I can stop this? I am using the APU as a processor only

You can disable the APU graphics by selecting the graphics card as the main video adapter, in the BIOS.

Also, plug the monitor to the graphics card itself.

I have disabled the APU in device manager just was not sure if BIOS would do much... The monitor is already connect to graphics card via HDMI
