I wanted to know if the value you imput is the total Memory available or does it take the DDR into effect? So like if I have a 128mb card should I put 128mb aperture size or 64? Thanks

It does use your system memory. I always set it to what ever my Video memory is. It basically doesn't kick in until your video cards resources are used up during a game or graphic intense application.

thanks for the link...
I do know that i needed to bump my aperature up to 256 to get doom3 to run in ultra mode


before that i had it at 128, i think if you have the memory to spare you should give it to your video card if you play alot of games, and i think thats where the half mentality came about


I wouldnt rule it out as being the wrong answer though, if that was the case i would only need to set my aper to 64 or 128 and then i would notbe able to run in ultra mode

In the old days it was %50 of vid card mem.

Now depending on the demands of the progs (games) in his case!
The total Vid RAM = OB RAM + Vid Card RAM
128meg card may require up to 512 megs allocated to the AGP Aperature<<< if you still have 128-256 left to run OS that is ... 256 min preferd.
256 meg card allocate 256megs to the AGP Aperature
I like having a gig of OB RAM... 512 AGP Aperature Allocation.
So since you have 512 megs of OB RAM allocate 256
