When you start your computer up, what do you see? Most computers show a screen made by the manufacturer or motherboard maker.
Yes i have found out what my motherboard is
Its called ASUS M2N68-AM PLUS
can anybody tell me if i can upgrade to a GT440?
and also can anybody tell me how the GT440 is better then the GT520?
I would like to know the differences
I'm a little pessimistic.
The M2N68-AM Plus is a microATX board, and a small one at that: 9.6 inch x 8.2 inch ( 24.4 cm x 20.8 cm ). It has a PCI-E X16 slot, which is good.
You could still have compatibility problems if your case is SFF (small form factor). Two possible problems:
Power supply too weak (220W).
Full height cards wouldn't fit.
If you needed to use a half-height card, you could still get a GT430, but it would want at least a 300W power supply.
You aren't going to find about either of those by using software.
