Default Asus MOBO Graphics Apeture Size

I just installed an Asus P4C 800 Deluxe MOBO, and I was looking through the BIOS and I saw the line , graphics apeture size, you can set it to 32mb, 64mb , 128mb, 256mb, the default seems to be 64, my graphics card is 128 mb. Should I change this from 64 to 128, or does this have nothing to do with.
Thanks, Dan

Thanks for that it cleared it up for me.
Also do you know where I can read about all the settings in the bios and how to set them? the manual that came with the motherboard doesn't explain much.
I have the 1011 upgrade bios from the asus website....Is this a good bios?
Thanks again, DSH

Thanks MicroBell, its great to have you!

I do have a thought, I used the ASUS updater and it updated the bios with American Megatrends 080009 bios. Is this a good bios or should I install myself 1012 0r 1013.
Thanks again, DSH
