Great step by step. For me you don’t need to install any external software like BlueStacks Tweaker or anything to increase BlueStacks App Player’s RAM, it can easily done manually from your system.

    It needs some amount of GPU power too to work, or even install
    I’d had an old PC, having a 128MBs of graphical memory size, BlueStacks refused to even install on that PC.

    I guess you should allocate 1500MB, that will let you do your tasks peacefully! But make sure that you do not play huge games while your bluestacks is running!

    The best optimisation for you is : While running bluestacks stop other things and while running games Stop Bluestacks so that it is not an issue for you. Give 2 GB for Bluestacks and it will eventually speed up the processing on your Bluestacks.
