    Within the BIOS settings...There are two options
    1)On chip VGA frame
    2)AGP Aperture size

    Each assigned a different value...the former assigned to 32 MB as a result i notice a -32MB of RAm missing in the system memory...Does adjusting the latter (AGP Aperture) affect the quality of games played on that?????????????????????????

    The first one is the frame buffer size while the agp aperture size is the amount of main memory to be used to as a spill-over for game textures should the frame buffer run out of memory.
    AFAIK, agp aperture is only applicable to external agp cards.
