In the BIOS it has a setting for GC - Robust graphics Booster: AUTO, FAST and Turbo. (currently set AUTO)

Q: What is the bios adjusting with these settings, the pci express frequency and or adding more system ram to

graphics?

I did see somewhere in vista - total memory available to graphics 756mb. (system ram total 2GB)

MB is Gig GA-G33M-S2. (The BIOS has other tabs available for graphics ie. freq and volt adjustment)

The PCIE card i'am using is a 6600GT 128mb ram.

Personnaly I just leave it to auto, I'm not absolutley certain what it does. But as the old saying goes "if it aint broke, don't fix it" (however if it is broke and no longer under warranty, hit it with a B.F.H.)

(Big F***ing Hammer)

Does the system have onboard vid? that could be why vista shows - total memory available to graphics 756mb.

Vista visualizes memory for the video card to swap out textures when the VRAM is full, sort of like a page file. Nothing to worry about, it isn't taking away from your ram or any system performance.

The Robust Grahpics booster is a bios controlled video card OC. If you aren't very good with OCing and just want a nice little boost in performance than turn it on turbo and see if you like the results.

I actually played around and did an experiment with that. It seems to provide a very small improvement. This was just using 3dmark06 however, without changing any other thing with the exception of the RGB from fast to turbo. I dunno just put it on turbo, its sounds cooler than what it gives out. Then you can say your graphics card has a turbo.
