There is dedicated video memory (controlled by the bios) and system video memory (controlled by the OS).

 

Any change to dedicated video memory is in the bios, if it has it at all.   Any change will be absolutely worthless as you are talking about a few MB and is not used by your games or OS.

 

You want better performance in graphics?   Add more system memory.
