Upgrade the RAM and it'll give you more graphics memory. This is because the vRAM on the iGPU is shared with the system memory. If memory serves, it'll push it to about 768MB with 8GB+ RAM, so not quite the 1GB you're looking for; but that's the only way to increase it.

Your model supports a maximum of 16GB RAM (2x8GB DDR3 1333MHz SODIMM). If you're going to upgrade the RAM, you might as well max the machine -- throw in 16GB for longevity. :)

Thanks for thinking of buying this ram model, I hope it is appropriate.
mac mini 8GB 2X Ram
That one is for the 2012 model, so it's a different voltage and runs at a quicker speed (1600MHz rather than 1333MHz). There are loads of people here who say it would work fine, but honestly, I'll always recommend sticking with stock.

What retailers do you use in Turkey, please? I can have a dig around and find one for you.

Err, not sure if Amazon deliver to Turkey, but here's one you can try:

https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-PC3-10600-204-Pin-Notebook-CT2CP102464BF1339/dp/B005LAYH3K/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1475744640&sr=8-5&keywords=ddr3+1333mhz+sodimm+2x8gb+16gb

You can try Crucial online store, as they offer international shipping options. Here's the RAM you'll need to order: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/mac-mini-(mid-2011)/CT3327388

There are a few Corsair retailers in Turkey who will stock the RAM you're looking for:

You already have Sierra installed.
You can get better response from your system, and more stability by upgrading the 4GB of RAM that you have.
A bonus when you upgrade your RAM - your system will have more VRAM available.
