    The integrated graphics will allocate the required memory for the application you are running. You will not be able to set the value for the Intel GMA 4500MHD because this is controlled by the manufacturer from the hardware level.

    Intel GMA videocards are not for gaming (unless it's a 2D game with low system req), COD4 will not run with enjoyable speed on an Intel GMA VGA. You need a VGA with dedicated memory to have a chance on running COD4 with acceptable FPS.

    Most of the Youtube.com videos are running CoD 4 at a resolution of 640x480 at an avg 20 FPS (or lower) with the lowest settings. You might want to try that.

    Integrated graphics is not meant for gaming. You shouldn't expect much from it.

    Does the Asus K50IJ laptop have an ExpressCard slot? If not, then ViDock is not an option.

    ViDock is also quite expensive and you'll need to buy a video card to put inside the ViDock. I don't think it's worth the money.

    If you get a laptop with an expresscard slot, then search on these forums for the DIY or Do It Yourself ViDock. Fairly inexpensive to make your own.
