hey everyone, At the moment my video card is set 64mb and I want to increase it to 256mb how do i do it? BTW : I have an Nvidia Gforce FX 5600256mb any help is appreciated, and i do realise doing this can cause overclocking and raising my computers temperature
Im pretty sure you have to have some kick ass soldering skills, but other than that, I have no clue. I am interested in knowing if there is anyother way.
what do you mean that card is set at 64mb?
Like I said there are ways to solder and make it work well. There are also programs that I forgot about like coolbits. Google it.
i wanna know who a 256mb card gets "set" at 64?
βlitzkriegi wanna know who a 256mb card gets "set" at 64?
Maybe there is a driver issue.

He means the aperture, usually by default the bios sets it to a low setting such as 64 or 32 mb, when you install the video card. I'm not sure if it limits the memory to whatever it is set to or whether it's just the most data that can be transferred at a time. But anywho, here is how to do it on most pcs.
Go into the bios at startup by pressing Del at the boot screen. Go to the advanced menu, and under that should be an option Chipset Features or something similar. In here you should have an option called Graphics Aperture, and it is probably set to Auto or 64. You can change this to either 32, 64, 128, or 265mb.
There you go.
Oh, well i never knew that...
Will my card be auto-set at 64B too? a RX800XT - if so, should i change it up?
