AGP Aperture Size

  hellfire18 11:46 03 Jan 2006


I have recently upgraded the IGP (Integrated Graphics Card) on my motherboard (Trident Blade 3D) to a PCI graphics card (Nvdia GeForce FX 5500 128MB DDR). The IGC had 8MB onboard memory and the ability to use 64MB of shared memory.

Now that I have my new PCI card with 128MB DDR onboard, should I set the AGP Aperture Size in the BIOS to the minimum it can be (4MB)?

Also, the "Frame Buffer" can either be 4MB, 8MB or N/A. Again should I set this to N/A as I am no longer using the IGC.

Thanks for any help.

You will glean from this, and other references on the web if you google - that the aperture size should probably be 128Mb. What you definately shouldn't do is reduce it right down - many cards will need a minimum of 12Mb to even work correctly.

Frame buffer can be set to N/A - though if you're not using the integrated graphics, it may not matter anyway - I don't know either way.
