No Your AGP AP size is allocate to the size of your system RAM so as seeing you have a gig 256 will be the best for you Plus thats a decent card..Did you manage to get that card sorted ?

Not yet.....I am at work at the moment..... I will try tonight. The color seems darker than on my FX5700LE...What I mean is tha some scenarios that are dimly lit appear almost to dark. Can a bad BIOS do that as well?

Usually aperture should be smaller. The more you make the card run it's own ram, the better the performancel. Side note: I doubt you will see a big performance increase or decrease.

Aperture set to 64 or 128 is typical. Bench AM3 (cause it's fast) to test the differences once you get the video problems worked out.

The bios shouldnt do that but make sure you have cleaned the connection between your monitor cable and socket on oyur g-card..shouldnt make much diff but this is a confusing one..you could try changing the jumper on your card from NTSC to PAL

Did not know there was a jumper but my driver says the card is ntsc anyway. Funny how that when I installed the driver, the video problem went away in windows but stayed screwed up in the BIOS.

Okay....Flashed that BIOS you linked me. Had to force flash because of a SSID error. Still same problem with the POST screen being in "widescreen". Would that mean something wrong with my card? Because after drivers were installed, windows graphics were normal!!! BIOS appears "widescreen".

not to mention the BIOS problem is now random....sometimes ok.....sometimes "widescreen".

*Just remembered something, I did not run Driver Cleaner when switching from my Nvidia card to the 9800 Pro. Should I do that?
