I have upgraded from integrated graphics to a 2GB Graphics card. At the moment I have 3GB memory. Will that be enough?

there is no need to upgrade system ram when upgrading a GPU. 3 GB is low for gaming But unless you have a 64 bit OS the max you can go is 3 GB. It is best to have at least 4GB of ram to game.

You don't need to upgrade RAM when upgrading the Video card.

what OS are you running and is it 32-bit or 64-Bit?

if it 32-bit, there is no reason to upgrade the memory.

if you have a 64-Bit OS, it will improve your system's performance using 8GB of RAM

It's windows 8 and 64-Bit. I will take it into consideration about upgrading. :)
