Hi
I have a Hercules 9700 Pro and in the BIOS settings the Graphics Apperture Size is 64Mb should it be this or do I need to set it to 128Mb as the graphics card has that amount of RAM

Thanks for all answers
Sam

Set the Graphics Apperture Size to half the amount of your system memory, not that you'll notice any dfference. I certainly don't.

Cheers. I have a 1 GB in memory so I will need to set it to 512 right?

Thanks

Yes 512 is correct, same as mine but like I said I haven't noticed any difference. The reason for this is some of the system memory is directly allocated to the AGP in order to reduce the workload of a graphics card ram. But as you have 128 mb of graphics ram and there are not many games/programmes out yet that require that much yet there is no noticable difference. Hope this helps.
