That onboard vga is using shared memory from your RAM, so I would go into bios and unshare it, or select something like 128MB/256MB, which is more than enough for onboard shared vga memory.

You can use onboard with a discrete graphics card and would have to enable this within the appropriate software (somebody will correct me if im wrong), such as catalyst control centre for ATI graphics cards. Using onboard and discrete is known as Hyrbid Crossfire/SLI, but Im not sure if the memory will bein added together.
