Hi, i am a gamer and would like to have 2 monitors, 1 in my  GPU (GTX1070), and the other one in the intel graphics slot on my motherboard. How much shared memory should i set in my bios for the intel graphics cpu to not have impact on my performance on my games?

Hi @tizaks98 

1. Do not change in BIOS the settings for the Graphics Memory. The amount Graphics Memory for the Integrated Graphics is automatically controlled by the Intel Graphics Driver and Windows. About half of RAM is assigned for graphics. So, increasing the RAM size may improve your performance.

2. Please read the Frequently Asked Questions for Intel® Graphics Memory on Windows® 10 to have more complete answer.

That should read "About half of RAM can be assigned for graphics as needs increase".
