Have you tried grabbing the latest patch for Halo - I think there was an
issue between SP2 and 256MB cards - have a look at
http://www.microsoft.com/games/halo/downloads.asp?

On aperture size in the BIOS I think I had to change mine to 64MB to get it
to work, at least with the drivers that were available in August.

I need help on this too. The game won't run cux Direct 3D
is not running, even though dxdiag says it is.
