The Asus M2N68 PLUS is a budget motherboard with support for lower end AM3 CPUs, such as the AMD Sempron 100, Phenom II, and Athlon II. It uses the nVidia nForce 630a non-SLI chipset, meaning it does not have any integrated video, and does not support multiple nVidia GPUs out of the box. Integrated into the BIOS are Asus EZ Flash, which allows users to upgrade the BIOS without starting an operating system and without a floppy disc and Asus Q-Fan, which auto-adjusts fan speed based on temperature, along with several other environmentally friendly energy-management functions. Unlike most newer motherboards, the M2N68 PLUS still uses DDR2 RAM, albeit the fastest 1066MHz version.
