Dear Palash,

Dedicated memory is the actual memory built in to your graphic card. It's helping you to render fast graphics with minimum delay. When the system requires more graphic memory, it allocates some memory from your RAM for smooth graphics. But, for best performance, it's better to have more dedicated memory in your graphic card.

Hope the information helps you. Cheers! !!

There is a nother way to achive this.

Go to Run and type the command "msinfo32" and press Enter
Command will open up the system information page.

Hope the information helps you all. Cheers!!!
