Default Video Card Question

Hi, I just recently bought a evga 6800 gt and it has 256mb of memory, my question is in the BIOS or CMOS (I forget) it says that the video aperture is 128mb and Im not sure if thats how it should be or do I need to up it to 256mb?

No need to change it. Video Aperture is how much space the Video card could take from the RAM once it runs out of its own RAM. But on rare occasion will your card run out of 256MB or hell even 128MB so just leave it how it is as it isnt holding you back.
