When I go into Bios, there is a setting that says Graphics aperture setting, with a list of settings on the right of the screen. Mine is set at 64Mb. but the list goes up to 256Mb.
what is a G.A.S. and should I alter mine, now I have a graphics gard.

Usually you can set it to say 64MB when you have a 64MB Graphics card but if you have problems then knock it back to 32MB.

If you have 128MB then 64 or 128MB setting.

The aperture is a portion of the PCI memory address range dedicated for graphics memory address space. Host cycles that hit the aperture range are forwarded to the AGP without any translation

64mb should be most effiencient for almost any card if it needs any more it can derive this from system memory

Around 64 to 128 should be OK for most cards.
