By geno2k3
Nov 27, 2007
  1. Hi, i went into bios today and saw that my AGP Aperture size was 64mb i set it to 256mb (the only other choice) is this as better choice for me? Or should i set it back?

    I have a radeon x800xl 256mb agp (4x agp 2.0 mobo)
    1gb of rdram (pc800)

    I use my computer for mostly gaming.

    Leave it at 256...

    Rule of thumb is to set the AGP aperture at 1/2 the amount of RAM that you video card had onboard. Thus, a 512 card shoud be set at 256. Reason being that you don't receive any additional benefits from setting it higher, although it will still run at that setting.
