I tried 7160, (Along with Jim's suggestion of 4) and loading those pages causes the x server crash. This is the only directive I'm passing in lts.conf

Yuck. I'm 95% sure it's not memory because this is the third box I've tested on, including taking memory from another, working, non-i810 box and putting it into the i810.

I've just upgraded the BIOS from a05 to a09. This does not change the results, nor is there a section for specifying video RAM. The closest thing I have is a 'Video DAC snoop' boolean.
