right click start
choose run...
type dxdiag

in popup, choose Display Tab
how much shared memory is showing? that is max card can use of your ram for graphics.
Display Memory (VRAM) is what card has, shared is total it can use.

if the game doesn't need more than 6gb it will use VRAM, I suspect ram is slower than VRAM so it is likely it only uses shared ram if it needs it.
