Hi, I am planning to buy R3 2200g CPU with ASUS Prime A320 motherboard and 8 GB ram. Can I only increase VRAM of APU to 2GB by not freaking out something?
Thanks,
HRSH.

Igpu uses your ram and will take what it needs based on your graphic settings in game. If you set a vram limit, that portion of ram you set will be allocated to the igpu and Windows apps/ games can't touch it for other stuff. I recommend setting vram limit as low as possible unless a game requires a set amount to actually run.

Info about limits here;

What is your budget for parts? If you have enough or can come up with more, I would get a GTX 1050ti, GTX 1650, or RX 570. If you planned on playing games, you are going to have a terrible gaming experience with just 8GB of ram and the Vega graphics of that CPU. Even just a GTX 1030 or RX 560 would be a far better option.
