Dude i'm not sure if you're trolling.
But just in case you are serious, here are some tips.

What you have is an integrated graphics processing unit (I-GPU) built in to your Intel Processor.
It is a basic i-gpu that is designed to simply run and project your display. Its good enough for day to day tasks like Video playing, Internet Browsing, and Office programs. But it's advanced enough to run old 3d games like Sims and Fifa at low settings.

Its video memory (VRAM) is shared with your dedicated RAM, a separate physical hardware.
From the BIOS menu (press del or F1 upon pc startup), you can adjust the video memory to eat more from your dedicated RAM. (from 32mb to 512mb or 1gb).

To be able to play the latest games, you need buy and install a Dedicated GPU.

Since you implied you don't have a budget for a brand new GPU, I recommend at least trying to buy a used 750ti from ebay which is around $40.

This way, you also don't have to upgrade your Power Supply Unit as dedicated gpus consume more power than integrated ones.

If you are not trolling, I hope this helps.

According to sources I need 256 MB to run a game but I only have 32
It's the only red
will I be gootchie in this cootchie

In short TC get a 1050ti and install it in your PCI-e slot in the same one that you are going to take out that old ass GPU from.

If your wondering where you can get one here is a link to a Newegg sale jump on it cause it has only 4 hrs left.

If you need help installing it google how to install GTX 1050ti and if you need anymore help you....are....completely.....Fu$%^D

I suggest anyone on this board migrate to the PCMR subreddit. It's far superior, and any s***posts like this automatically get downvoted to oblivion and never seen.
