it means the integrated graphics is taking a share of the memory to process the graphics and taking that memory away from the CPU. To make the most of the 512Mb you should get a separate graphics card such as those that plug into a PCI, AGP or PCI-express slot that have their own onboard memory and don't need to "borrow" memory.
