I wouldnt buy the latest vid card anyway, I'd settle for a 9600XT with 128 MB RAm, capable of handling all the latest games. It won't be smooth and
perfect, but it will be just fine till you can upgrade your system completely if you do.
As for the bios option, the computers I work on are from 1992 and beyond, any with onboard video have these options
Usually they're found in "Integrated Peripherals" Look for something along the lines of "Video options" there should be an option for AGP
arpeture size, and or Video Ram size. If I were you, I'd load up my BIOS on the next reboot and write down all the options you see, and post em
If not me, I'm sure somebody knows where to find em.
EDIT: The only thing I can tell you about overclocking onboard video, is to overclock your RAM, as that's the true source of onboard video. But
heck, avoid it if possible, Intel's aren't really made for it
I've seen instances where kids tried to overclock their P4 or C, only to find out
that while the overclocking was on, neither the onboard sound or video would run.
Is this a manufactured PC by any chance? Like a name-brand? (Dell, gateway, e-machine, hp, compaq etc?)
