settings, advance settings it display that i have:

Total Available Graphic Memory 767 MB,
Dedicated Video Memory 256mb

NO. It's just the AGP Aperture Size

can you alter how much extra system ram is allocated to the graphics card?

It is allocating the memory address space it is not actully using the system
memory ito tsself and does not cause a problem unless you try and install
4GB of memory on a 32 bit OS system.
