    HI all, I was looking around in my bios and i noticed something called agp aperture. it has different settings for mem. just wondering, does this allocate a portion of ram for graphics? any tips on what I should set it to?

    Yeah, it does exactly that. I have my ti4200 set at a 128mb aperature, works well, some people say 64 or 128 or 256. 128 works for me.

    Yep, AGP Aperture Size controls just how much system RAM can be allocated to AGP for video puposes. The aperture is a portion of the PCI memory address range dedicated to graphics memory address space. Host cycles that hit the aperture range are forwarded to the AGP without any translation.

    I'm running vertually the same setup as you:

    Athlon 2100XP
    MSI KT3 Ultra
    PNY Ti4200 64mb
    1280mb DDR270 Mushkin/3.5Gigs of virtual mem

    And mine seems to run best set at 128MB, but, IMO you should
    just try different settings.
