So I just heard the VRAM of the APU is actually the systems RAM, is it possible to increase this in the BIOS? Is it safe?

It's not the amount of VRAM that is giving you performance issues.

I never said I had performance issues. It's working fine for what I need.
I am asking a question.

Edit:
Your iPhone is what is giving you performance issues when posting.

Yes you can change it in the bios (from 64 to 512mb) without problems. However, more than 256 ram wont improve performance (unless your game crashes due to low vram like mount and blade modded) . What you would want to increase for better performance is ram speed or gfx engine clocks.
Also, keep in mind the vram still counts towards the 3.3 gibs ram limit of win 32 bit (4gb ram with 512 as vram will leave you with 2.8 gb ram).
