  1. Best answer
    Here is one to consider:
    ASUS Socket AM2+/GeForce 7025/DDR2-1066/A&V&GbE/Micro ATX Motherboard M2N68-AM PLUS

    There are others, but I'm assuming your needing an AM2 based (DDR2 RAM) mobo??
  2. Thank u verymuch. But can't we use DDR3 RAM with AM2+ motherboard?
    Any better mother board? I think my proccesor compatible with AM2+ also.

    Question 1 = No, DDR2 Only With AM2, AM2+ Is DDR2 Or DDR3 (Depends On The Board), However You Can Use An AM2 On A AM2+ Board But Only The DDR2 Models

    Question 2 = Yes
  4. Thank u for your reply. That means i can't use DDR3 RAM?
    Also If i can't get a Mobo for this processor ( Athlon X2 3600+), are there any best Processor + Mother board around $120?

    I Always Liked The Tried And True Nvidia Nforce4 Chipset, These Can Be Had For WAY Less Than $120.00 (More Like Around $40.00) I Would Suggest Using The Leftover $$ To Get As Much RAM As Possible, Even Older Machine Will Run Smoothly With Enough RAM, As A General Rule MAX IT OUT, Nowadays 2GB Barely Cuts It, 4GB Is Better, But Id Reccomend At-Least 6GB. Within Limits; You Can Never Have Too Much RAM, Just Dont Get Redculous 8GB Is A Nice Round Number.

    And No, No DDR3 (In Reality DDR3 Actually Looses To DDR2 When It Comes To Older CPUs; Athlon Series, Semprons, Pentium 4 Etc. In Witch They Prefer Lower Latency Over Higher Speed.)
