Default agp question

well as you can see in my sig i got a cheap radeon 128mb card.
In my bios,i can set the "aperture size" from 64 to 256mb..what does that mean?Its by default on 64...what would happen if id put it to 128 or 256?Is this like,if i got a 128mb card i set it to 128?
Well i dont know if thats because of it,but ive set it to 128 the last week,and 3 days later my card started to flash.I was playing SOF2 when suddenly it shutted down,and windows became sooo bright,i mean REALLY bright,full flashy.I got the impression that i burnt my card because when i play games the graphics are not as good as theyre supposed to be anymore...

Could it be because of the aperture size thing??

wow dude, lol. the aperture for a 128 cards needs to stay at 64. When u put it at 128, itl simulate a 256 gfz card, while will slow down all ur games, except ones that require so much memory.

Do nt put it at 128 or 256.. It stays at 64

My current specs:
i7 920
Biostar TPower x58
3x2GB g.skill
XFI GTX260 Black Edition
640 WD Caviar Black
Vista Home Premium x64
