M3N72-D motherboard will take all Athlon II and Phenom II CPUs including the new X6 Thubans.
Update BIOS to the latest version.

Athlon II X4 635 better than Phenom II X2 255BE? Better for... what?

^ You probably won't need to update the BIOS. Most manufactures now ship BIOS that can support most AM3 CPUs.

You'll want to use Asus Easy Flash 2.
Read pages 4-5 and pages 4-35 of your manual.

Yes you are. Bios Version 0502 dates from 11/24/2008.
And the CPU support list for Athlon II X4 635 wants Bios Version 1402 03/19/2010 (or higher). No reason not to use the latest Version 1507.
What version of Windows are you using?

I think you want to update the BIOS. Then install the new CPU and get everything running stable. And after that do the OS upgrade
