Right now my MOBO is set to 64, will it make a difference setting it to 128 or 256?
And how does that work?

IIRC, the AGP apature is the amount of system memory reserved for the video card if the GPU runs out of memory.

Generally, it is said to keep it at the same, or double, your GPU memory.

If you want to check and see if it makes a difference, try changing it and running some benchies with the different settings.

I saw a review not long ago with regards to AGP apature, but I'm too lazy to look for it right now. :wink:
