    Why would you want a 512 aperture??

    You dont have to use 512 appature, you could use a 64MB appature, it does not really matter. I dont know where you got the idea that you have to use an appature equal to your video memory, actualy you should require less if you have more video memory, I have never used more than 128. And appature size makes little to no diffrence anyway, at least in games.

    I dont even recall seeing the option in my DFI bios.....

    That is no longer put in bios, at least in DFI's. It really didn't do much and was useful back in the P3 days when video cards were 4/8/16MB.

    yeah is that why on some rigs when you put two SLI video cards in your rig you can lose system memory. I've seen a few systems with 2 256Mb PCIe cards and 2-4GB of RAM reported as 1.5GB or 3.5GB.

    Could that be a 32bit vs 64bit OS bug or is it videomemory? I think the former but you never know for sure sometimes.

    Both will handle BF2 at higher resolutions as long as you have enough RAM. BF2 mostly just needs a lot (2GBs) of RAM to run at highest settings. With 1GB and a 6800GT I can run everything at highest except I have to have either textures or lighting at Medium. With my 9800 Pro I would have to have both at Medium. See my point?

    When I say run, I mean with respectable framerates and no or almost no stuttering. Sounds like something was being done very wrong if you couldn't run the 6800GT at 1024x768 without stuttering but the 6800U handled it at 1600x1200 just fine. The difference between those to cards is pretty insignificant, especially in that game. I'd certainly say you were doing wrong based on the abysmal performance both your 9800 Pro and 6800GT got compared to mine. I was running 768MB of RAM and a 2.2GHz Barton with both cards (though I now run a 2.5GHz Athlon 64 with 1GB of RAM with the 6800GT).

    And BTW, I'm getting kind of sick of editing your rig out of your posts. It makes the post huge and it's kind of unecessary to have it in every thread. Make a signature with the rig in it for youself but make it list components horizontally.
