If your machine is a desktop and has an available PCIe X16 slot, the best thing you can do for yourself is to find an add-on graphics card (either nvidia or amd-based).
You will save yourself a lot of time, effort, and trouble, and you will be much happier with the results.
Just be careful selecting such a card, which will depend on whether your desktop can accommodate a full or half-size card.

I understand you would like to know if the graphics controller can use more than 1.6GB of video memory.
Let me apologize for any inconvenience this issue may be causing to you.
Intel® HD Graphics 2000 supports up to 1.7GB of video memory so it is not possible to make the graphics controller use more than that. You can confirm that in the following link https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/graphics-drivers/000005472.html
If you increase RAM memory to 8GB the graphics controller will keep using up to 1.7GB of video memory.
Let me know if you have or not any other inquiry.
Thanks for your help and extremely quick response times. I think ultimately i'm just gonna abandon the idea of PC gaming and go w the PS4, since even if I got a dedicated video card, Im confident my processor speed is way below the recommended sys requirements for any recently released game.
Next time Ill build a PC on the dell site instead of buying a premade one at the store. Thanks again.
Additional advice - buy one with a nvidia or amd graphics card, even if the processor has graphics.
