so i bought a lenovo win8 64-bit laptop a while back (upgraded to win 7 64-bit) and did some searching. i'm unable to figure out why the graphics are so iffy on games.

league of legends gets maybe 30fps on medum settings (after using the optimized settings from the AMD Gaming Evolved system)

tera gets 10-20fps on very low or medium-high settings. (don't say it's due to the programming, i already know that's part of the issue)

firefall (beta) gets 10-20fps on very low.


current laptop specs:
BIOS: InsydeH2O Version CCB.03.73.1083CN12WW (1.01)
BIOS Manufacturer: Lenovo (released: 04/23/13)
Operating System: Win 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
Processor: A-10 5750m apu with 3gb radeon 8650m graphics
RAM: 6GB 1600 mhz (1-4GB, 1-2 GB)

so i check my available video memory and it lists 768mb, but in the shared memory it's listing the other 2176 mb (2.25gb) that doesn't make sense to me since it's advertised with 3gb of video memory.

i heard that if i get 16gb of 1866 RAM would help some of the issues, but i wanted to get advice here and see if any settings or upgrades are suggested.
