Geforce 8200 IGP

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to give the GeForce 8200 more than 256MB ram?

 

Help would be very useful.

yes...you should be able to allow 512mb of ram to the onboard...on some boards but not all...check the BIOS options to see what it allows...

You can give it up to 512mb, I have the same motherboard, 256mb is the default but it allows you to up it to 512mb or even lower it to 128mb, 64mb, and I think 32mb.

Also I noticed in your sig that you are planning to upgrade to a phenom II, do you plan on getting a new motherboard as well? I'm not sure but I don't think it supports the phenom 2s, I may be wrong though.

Strictly speaking with on board graphics it's a motherboard problem is it not? ;):blink:

It's memory too is it not? So isn't this the correct location?

hei, i used to have that board too.. u have to update the bios to the latest one before you have the selection of 512MB frame buffer, the place is in advance setting-chipset-frame buffer ;)

I moved the thread to here from where it was originally posted then cleaned up my tracks...nice try though..;)

 

 

OP: if you plan to use the onboard...use a 2x2gb kit of ram and allocate 512mb to the onboard...it will run pretty decent that way nomatter what OS you install...

Yup I have 2x2gb... the double Ram for the IGP should give it a small boost.
