Test System Setup

 

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+

 

Memory: 2x 1GB DDR2-1066 Corsair (Supplied by Corsair)

 

Hard Disk: 500GB Seagate 7200.9 SATA-II (Supplied by Seagate)

 

Graphics Card: Integrated GPU and ATI Radeon X1300XT

 

Cooling: GIGABYTE Neon K8 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

 

Drivers: ATI SB600 2.506.1540.28, ATI Catalyst 7.3, Nvidia ForceWare 93.73 and DX9c

 

Again like our MSI AMD 690G motherboard review, no overclocking results were done as the motherboard only hit a marginal 5MHz FSB increase.

 

Our integrated systems were set with the highest amount of memory available in the BIOS to each - for the ASUS M2NPV-VM (based on Nvidia GeForce 6150) it was 256MB, 512MB on the MSI AMD 690G motherboard and 512MB on the GIGABYTE motherboard.

 

All memory settings were set at 1:1 SPD with the FSB at 200MHz.

 

Let us get this show on the road and find out which offers the best performance in our benchmarks.
