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.

Sounds like you're good to go.

Did you have any reason for not sharing this information with us, or did you simply not realize that it mattered?
