I assume you mean an ASUS M2N68-VM or possibly one of THESE?

It's a socket AM2/AM2+ board based on the older nVidia 7050 integrated graphics chip. As with the majority of integrated boards, the graphics aren't suitable for gaming so a video card will be required. It uses DDR2-SDRAM DIMMs. SIMMs haven't been used since the 90's.

I suggest you get a more up to date board.

Thanks... Ever heard of a DDR2 motherboard with 3 slots? Cause that's what I have :P

I have no clue what this new board exactly is. Anyway... Would this be better than my current board and does this other board support a dual-core proccessor?

I'm really eager to replace my current motherboard as it's old and I don't think it's in the best condition... The CPU fan fails to start at times and it only allowes anything plugged into the Primary Slave...

"Ever heard of a DDR2 motherboard with 3 slots?"

No, not off hand. Are you sure it's not DDR1?

"I have no clue what this new board exactly is"

There *should* be a model number printed on it somewhere. Hopefully it's not an HP board...if it is, the model number will be M2N68-LA. It's based on an even older chipset, plus the HP BIOS is severely crippled.

"Would this be better than my current board and does this other board support a dual-core proccessor?"

Can't answer that without knowing the make/model of your old board & the correct model number for your new board.
