    Is it lag? The card may not be powerful enough, or not being powered enough. Is it overheating? Is your card well ventilated? If you don't have a 400W power supply or greater, it may be a power issue. I think its a heat issue though

Hi rajiv2612.
Suggest you check for any software update's from GeForce for you're 8600 GT. Also check for any software patches for the game (s). (Include windows update service as well).
The normal stuff like running windows system defrag & disk cleanup utilities should be run once a month for gamers.
Lastly, if you feel heat may be an issue. Open the PC case & leave opened while playing the game that seems to slow down the most. If the game does not slow down (After checking & updating all of the above), than maybe you need to add a 3" fan to the case, so fresh air blows directly onto the 8600 GT.

Good Luck!

Mike

I have done a monitor upgrade i.e, DELL S2340L FULL HD1080P monitor and my system has the following specs: Motherboard:M2N MX SE PLUS Processor: Athlon X2 Dual core @ 1.93Ghz RAM: ADATA 2GB DDR2...


Unless you are using a high end motherboard with the latest chipset, you will find it very difficult to get an "onboard" graphics chip to output that resolution. And your motherboard just doesn't have the power to display at that resolution. You will need to find a graphics card that will display that kind of resolution. The Nvidia GTX 650 or the Radeaon 7750 are both capable of handling that display and are cheap (in terms of graphics cards anyway).

It seems like you have either a thermal problem (processor cooler defective, undersized or incorrectly mounted) or a defective power supply. I'm about 90% sure that the problem is thermal.

I need a diagram of the ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard


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.

Hi. I have 2.60 Ghz process of AMD & asus motherboard inbuild Grapcis but when i installed games its not working. What is the solution on that?


That is a very weak onboard graphics chip - only very old games at low resolution will run on it, the other will simply refuse to start. Get an much better separate video card if you want to play games on that pc.

Grapghics card or ram?


No need for extra memory, your onboard video card is truly ancient- replace it with the best PCI-E video card you can buy.
