concerning Agp apature size...

QUOTE Although it is very common to hear people recommending that the AGP aperture size should be half the size of system memory, that is wrong!

Linkage' ">http://www.rojakpot.com/default.aspx?location=7&var1=18
big site explaining tons, if not all bios options...

just some information.. since i've read on here a couple times that it should be half the size

btw, that site is a great read, i recomend it highly

For me it sounds like the Windows Page File. More RAM (In this case VRAM) you have, less extra memory you need to take from other place.

Wow, I don't like that site at all. There's more talk about how other people copy his stuff that anything and the advertisments are way too many. I've seen better content than that site (maybe not all in one place but still...).

i was talking about just the general information... not the fact that they ramble on about plagerism....
the fact that all that bios setting information is all in one place, is relitivly amazing to me... and the fact that its all organized is once again, amazing to me...
heh...
so let me clarify...
The information contained within, about the bios settings and the in-depth descriptions of each setting, Is a good read.

That's odd.. I rarely ever heard anyone suggest to use half your system memory as AGP aperture size. I always set it to 1/2 video memory, or equal to video memory. from what infiltrator says im not sure i want to check out that site
