I have the motherboard MSI K9AGM2-FIH with Socket AM2 and Chipset AMD 690G+SB600.

I have found ASUS M2A-VM from e-Bay (ASUS Site).

Is ASUS M2A-VM compatible with MSI K9AGM2-FIH ?

    Be aware that when swapping motherboards, Windows generally detects enough changes in the system that re-authorization is required.  This brings up another point.

    If your version of Windows was supplied with the original system (an "OEM" license), please read Masqueraid's article on OEM licensing.  You will need to purchase a new Windows license to be legal on a new motherboard.

    when you change the board - be sure to verify the mounting standoff's - as not to short one to mobo !
