I just purchased a new video card; PNY AGP 512mb GeForce 7600GS.

I have an ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard.

I went into the BIOS and at the; graphics aperture size edit, it showed 256mb. I tried to edit this to 512mb and it does not have a 512mb option to select.

I installed this card yesterday and since that time, while on the internet (I don't think that being on the internet has anything with it), my computer froze. I had to use the 'reset' button to get the computer out of the situation. This then happened a second time.

I was wondering if the fact that I cannot change the BIOS setting to 512mb has anything to my situation?

Any assistance would be appreicated.

Graphics Aperture Size does not refer to the memory on the graphics card, but to the amount of main memory used by the graphics card. Having more memory on the graphics card reduces your needed Graphics Aperture Size. With 512MB of graphics memory you can put the Graphics Aperture Size at 64MB.
