    AGP Aperature Size

    could someone please explain this setting in a motherboards BIOS, is it good to set the AGP Aperature size to the same amount of Video RAM you have? Any info greatly appreciated!

    From what i understand...

    This is the amount of ram that you will set aside in the event that your video cards ram runs out, that is if you have 128mb of ram and a pretty swan that flys over the screen takes up another 64mb of ram and you run out....it will access your system ram.

    I've heard that setting it a little less then your GPU is usually a good idea...again i could be wrong

    but thats what i think it is

    the AGP aperature is basically extra video ram, so at about 256 in the aperature it would max out the agp bandwidth

    Either half the amount of system memory in your computer or the max that your motherboard supports.
