The shared memory you see in dxdiag is automatically set by the dynamic windows manager (dwm). If you've done a hardware upgrade, then:

1. Turn off Aero (switch to Classic or Basic theme)
2. Uninstall the video driver and reboot
3. Install the (new) video driver for your new card and reboot
4. Update DirectX
5. Turn Aero on

There is no way to reduce the amount of dwm shared RAM. You shouldn't worry about it as it will be used only if you open too many windows, like too many. e.g. My ATI has 1 Gb memory, dxdiag shows me 4 Gb total that can be used by dwm, but my task masnger shows it just 1,79 Gb of my 8 Gb RAM used.
