  1. You need to list your cpu id number, (such as 520) and look it up on asus website under "cpu support". If you don't know it, try cpu-z, a free download which will identify your cpu and memory.
  2. find and download CPUz use it and check the full name of your CPU on CPUz like mine is Pentium 4 HT 3.0ghz but on CPUz its called "Intel Pentium 4 531" the last 3 digit is important there whenever you planning to buy new Mobo look closely on that motherboard if its compatible with your if you see your fully name of your CPU go to Asus/Support to CPU support browse your CPU there and it well shows all Asus motherboard that may compatible with your CPU..
