you should just ignore that.

your intel graphics use your ram for its vram and its currently setup to use anywere from 32MB to 1024MB depending on how much it needs. unless your playing a game or something it wont use anywhere near the max.

if you want it to run better in games, and thats why you are concerned. it wont run any better the g41 graphics are just terrible. you will need to buy a video card. but you can get one that is 10 times better than the G41 for like $30.

everything here is better than what you have

just sort by the available slot that you have. AGP or PCI express

Your whole setup is obsolete if you want to run the latest games.

Get an Intel i5 setup for cheap and be merry.
