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.
