Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard

3 Answers

Very slow performance on M2N-MX SE Plus

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?

    i have the mobo in my computer, as i bought the asus barebones. put in an amd athlon X2 6000+, OCZ 2GB ram, good hard drive etc, 600W power supply. yet i cant play any games, including half life 2. thought it may be a graphic card problem, updated to a nvidia 9800GT, same problem - frame rates of around 5fps. have tried every benchmark i can think of - the processor seems fine, doesnt seem to be overheating, the ram is stable. i have no idea what the problem is!

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.

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

Well i have a compaq presario sr1603wm and basically i was going to buy a new computer but thats like 600 bucks so i was wondering... what kinds of graphics cards/ram/processors/power supplies can i use to...


you can use these processors:


AMD Athlon 64 (3000+ - 4000+)
AMD Athlon 64 FX (51 - 60)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 (3600+ - 4800+)
Some AMD Opteron 1xx series
Some Sempron 3x00+ (Step E3,

any standard wopeer supply will do, and you will need a more powerfyul power supply for a mre powerful graphics card.

you can get any pci-e card. an nvidia 9800gt used to be the 2nd best graphics, but its now the minimum card for gaming. I wqould reccomend a 9800, or at least an nvidia gtx260. the higher the numper, per series, and the 4xx and 5xx series are btter than the 2xx. be sure to check the graphics card for reccomended power supply rating.


for the ram, you need pc3200 DDR ram(DDR-400) or higher DDR ram, not compatible with ddr2 or ddr3.

I would back off the 9500 GT and get the onboard video working first.

I would also suggest that you don't have a good enough PSU for that 9500 card, Corsair memory, and the and the AMD 64 x2 5200.

That could account for the slowing down and occasional blank out. The Extreme 450 is much better suited for a milder, stock system.

For that system I would suggest a GOOD PSU at least 650 and preferably 700 to 750.

Intel Pentium Dual Core and AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors


I'd advise don't start thinking below E2180. As per the performance go, E2180 and AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ are almost same but E2180 runs cooler. If you are going to use dedicated graphics card, go for E2180 and if you want a CPU for Integrated Graphics go for AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ because most of the 780G/790X chip-based AMD-compatible boards offer superior IGP.
Best wishes...

E2180 Vs Athlon 64 X2 5000+


depends on what you plan to do with the cpu amd are good but a 3200 may only run @ 1.8 to 3.2 ghz depending while a intel 3200 will run 3.2 ghz.
I believe intel are more stable & run cooler than AMD but AMD benchmarks on Games better but run hotter (so get a good cooling fan & heatsink both pentium / celeron d & intel dou / dual core / core 2 dou and amd x2 have 2 cores (but watch your front side bus and cache the higher the better but the more $ also) then You need a good stable mobo that supports the chip you get (I preffer asus & msi for Gamers and biostar / msi for home users)
