Adding more video card memory....

Is there a way to add more video memory into your graphics card just by dragging the memory from your system RAM? I have a AMD Anthlon 2400+, 640 mb. PC-2100 RAM, Nvidia Geforce FX 5700VE, and 160 gb. Maxtor Diamondmax 9 hard drive....

I have never seen a way to do this, and as the other person points out, you don't want to. You would be better off upgrading the video card.
