The problem is your gpu not elevating the clocks to 3D clocks. It stays in much, much lower 2D clocks. Me and my friend got the same problem, we were using too high overclock. It may fixable by a bios update to a certain limit, but the fact may still be, that you are pushing the card too high.

In middle of the game... its realy stable... never down the FPS in middle on the game.
in msi afterburner its the same... in randoms times, when open this program... have a poor fps... but when open correctly...runs great hours!

my bios version is 62.00.58.00.80. In the extra, have a 1.22v max.
and in FTW bios... extra have a 1.15v max. (FTW or SSC for example).

my cuestion is:

what happened, if i flashed to a FTW... bios version 62.00.45.00.80?

THX FOR THE HELP D:!
I'm not the best person to ask about gpu ocing, but what jkoljo said sounds like what is happening.

Maybe try this http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/4238...nclocking.html to lock the card in 3d performance.

Good luck

Greetings fellow M2N abusers

I have been slowly watching my PC wither and age, so I figured it was about time to giver her a little tune-up. Then, before my eyes (err on my monitor ), I find this club

Funny how the universe works

Well before I start reading all the posts and running all the tuning applications, was wondering if you had room for 1 more member?

Heres my CPU-Z Validation:


...and I am now going to update my sig according to the 1st post instructions.

SO....did I pass all the required tests and get accepted?

I agree with this, i had the same problem, the easiest way to fix it is to tick the option in Nvidia Control Panel / Mangae 3D settings / Affected game (it didn't happen all the time) / Power management mode - change this to "prefer maximum performance".

Welcome Scarslett,

I would suggest you keep your present ram and update the cpu, to something on the cpu support list that the 5001 bios supports http://ca.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=FsG6bN2HsOMpwLxD.

Far more performance to be had than replacing the ram.

Good luck

Wow, really!!!

Well that just completely flipped everything I THOUGHT I knew about computer architecture. I was under the impression that more memory was always the first and best way to speed up a system.

Good thing I found this site.....I'm thinking there going to be a lot more that I will "re-learn"

Thanks Gyro!!!!

Especially with your mb.

As you are no doubt aware that board has very limited ocing features.

And you can get a decent cpu for less than a ram upgrade.

This is a yes and no situation as ram can always improve system performance but only up to a certain point like when you are not running enough for your system. The amounst of ram needed for your OS and the number of open applications being used on a normal basis will determine how much ram is is being used and if more will make any real world difference. XP does not use all that much ram when compared to Vista or Win 7. So you would most likely only need to be running 2GB but I like 4GB to be on the safe side. Besides games are getting more and more demanding on systems these days.

If you take a look at your Task Manager it should show you the CPU usage and Ram useage. 4 Gig's is plenty to be quite honest. I got 8 just for the fun of it and a little for bragging rights. I don't think I have ever used up more than 4 Gigs of ram at any one time but then again I tend to reboot once I open and close so many applications just to make sure my system stays snappy.

Instead of increasing the amount of ram how about getting a better CPU and getting your ram to operate at faster speeds.

EDIT: I just purchased some more MX-2 w/free shipping at SVC. Now I'll be able to test out how well I can run my newest AM3 Ph II X4 955 (C3) CPU in the M2N32 SLI Deluxe. I'm looking for a way to improve my total Rams bandwidth by using my FSB for overclocking rather than using the CPU multiplier My Destroyer limits my FSB to only about 260MHz while I have been able to get the M2N32 SLI Deluxe HTT to upwards of 330-350 FTW...We shall see soon enough.
