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.
