  1. in my bios...it says that my graphics card aperature is set at 64mb....when i have a 128M graphics card (ATI Radeon 9200 se) What does the AGP aperature mean? And should i change it to 128 MB ?

    If I'm not mistaken, which is possible cause I'm not entirely sure, but I believe that is a specific amount of System Memory reserved for Graphics use. If you don't have much system memory, you don't want to increase it's value.

    well i do have over a gig of memory...so i can't see how raising it up will cause any problems.....but who knows lol..

    Right now, cards with 128mb of VGA memory or more are not really affected by AGP apperture. You probably won't notice much of a change if you set it to something higher.
