Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard
I got a 5200+ amd athlon 64 X2 chip and im getting really poor performance in any game, including the 2D ones. My graphics card has better framerates on a different computer with the same drivers. What is wrong with CPU, not enough power?
The cpu is overheating, just like mine, so you need to revert to an old bios
2.9 (stick it on a cd, rename the rom file to M2PLUSSE.ROM)
check the asus site out
reiterate: overheat = stress cpu = 100% death = fps death = total death

You may have too much stuff running in the background using up ram and processor cycles. Press ALT CTL and DEL at the same time and open task manager. It will let you know how many processes are running in the background and how much your 5200+ is being used and how much ram too.The names of the processes can be quite cryptic so don't just start taking them out.Download the program Process Explorer and run that. It will bring up the same list. The difference will be that you will have the option to google the process and see what it does. You can then decide if you can get rid of it without effecting your computer.Next go to Start/Run and type in msconfig. This is where you can get rid of those start up programs. Deselect all but the ones that are related to your anti virus program. Reboot and check the task manager to see if it helped.

A simple and inexpensive motherboard for the enthusiast or the first time builder, the Asus M2N-MX is a great starting point for anyone wanting to build a system or upgrade their motherboard. Designed with the small form factor case in mind, this motherboard will fit into most small desktop systems. Equipped with an AMD socket AM2, suitable for Athlon 64 processors, including the X2 and FX series, it's more than capable of handling anything you can throw in there.
Using the Nvidia GeForce 6100 chipset with integrated graphics in conjunction with up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, the M2N-MX is perfect for those that don't need a discrete graphics card. Audio's onboard, too: hear crystal-clear quality from all your audio - MP3 playback, home theatre, advanced gaming, VOIP and more, and never worry - SoundMAX high-definition audio is there to enhance your experience!
It also includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, onboard 5.1 channel sound, and 4 SATA ports. And because of those 4 ports, by adding multiple hard drives to the system the M2N-MX supports RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5. The M2N-MX has multiple expansion slots to use including one x16, and one x1 PCIe slots, and two additional PCI slots. Build a powerful system -- the Asus M2N-MX is a great foundation.
