I found this on evga's site. Is this what I should run for my 6800gt? Thanks.

AGP Transfer mode : 1x

I'd have to say that data is pretty out of date for the latest 3d accelerators :)

Yeah, that article was written in 2001, a proverbial lifetime in the world of 3D graphics.

I only have two questions about it. Should I make my video ram cacheable? Should I enable agp fastwrite? Thanks.

Try these two sites for Bios setting recommendations;

RojakPot (http://www.rojakpot.com/default.aspx?location=7&var1=18)

LostCircuits (http://www.lostcircuits.com/advice/bios2/1.shtml)

Not too sure on how up to date they are.

Video RAM cacheable is an obsolete BIOS setting. It no longer has any effect with current graphiccards and therefore can be set to whatever you prefer :)

AGP Fastwrite should always be enabled unless you are experiencing lockups or crashes.
