    The GPU part of the APU is likely using up the 1Gb..

    Uh, is this supposed to happen? :P
    Would it be more convenient for me, if I could, to change that?

    It is totally normal and my APU A8-6600K uses some of my RAM up as well. And you can't change any of the memory usage,, as far as I understand.

    Yes.. Well.. you'll have 15Gb usable. Which is a lot, IMO. Right now you have 5Gb and that should be fine for normal usage.
