I have a Asus m2n68-am se2 mobo, with a anthon64x25800, and bfg tech 9500gt 2 gigs ram. When i,m playing a game call o0f duty 4 it will slow way down and then after awhile it will speed back up. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem, thanks

If you are running Vista I would suggest 2G more ram.
Especially if you are playing online.
I have the same processor and run COD 5 with it and it does well.

If your AV and other things are running you may be running out of memory and the system has to swap things in and out causing a slowdown.

today i picked up a m2n68-am se2 motherboard and a 8600gt gfx card, but cant seem to get the dam thing to work(8600 gfx card that is). downloaded the latest drivers etc went into bios to turn off the onboard gfx. yet still nothing, just not picking up the card ? :(
