Hi all

I have just looked in the BIOS and seen my Graphics Apeture size is set to 64mb

I have a 128mbddr card, should the Graphics Apeture size be set to 128mb in the BIOS?

In todays systems that setting is useless.

Please explain

as powerless says, it is very rarely used these days, but when it was, the aperture size was normally set at just over double the gfx card size.

Set at "double". Not just over.

Need an explanation and if i do adjust it what will be the outcome?

Also why is it there?

this may help but if it is working properly, leave it set at what it is......
