Here's a BIOS question... I've got an Asus A7V600 with a PC Radeon 9600 Pro 256MB in it. On the BIOS under "Graphics Aperture Size" it says 64mb... should I increase this to 256, or even higher? What is it, and will it improve performance?

bring it to 128mb...many recent boards do not have this option...if your board does not then 256mb is the next best choice.

My understanding is how much of your system memory you want to allow the graphics card to be able to use as a frame buffer.

If it isn't a P6 then it isn't a processor

You can set it to whatever you want, but with a 256mb card you shouldn't need very much of the system memory when running current games.
