im just wondering if i can dedicate some of my abundant ram, and maybe even some cpu cycles to my much lacking graphics "card". My computer came with no agp slot for some reason, unknown to me. I have a gig of ram and a 3GHz processor that i plan to overclock soon after i finish my cooling system. Anyone got a useful snippet of software? or a setting i can tweak to make my graphics run faster? Btw i have all the newest drivers for all my hardware. Any helps appreciated, thanks. :whistling:

There really isn't any software that can allocate system ram to video except the motherboards that run on-board video. Instead it would be better to run a standard PCI slot video card. You won't have the pipelines you can get with a AGP card, and you do lose some speed, but i have played many games with a pci card without problems. Heres about the best you can get with PCI.
