    Ahh bummer man. It pays to look at the socket of the CPU and your mobo. Also, you would need DDR3 RAM for that CPU cause I use to have that CPU. Was pretty decent I must say, could overclock it to 4.2Ghz using AMD Overdrive.

    But yea, it pays to actually look at the specs of your hardware to see if they are compatiable.

    If you are looking for good mobo's, buy Gigabyte ones. They are generally a bit more expensive but they are alot cooler and more stable.

    yeh, the only problem is the mobo i have is a ASUS M2N sil delux wich is an AM2, AM2+ mobo so i could only run the AMD cpu yeh? i know the AMD phenom i got is an AM3 chip but the Asus website said if i flashed the bios to version 5001 (which i did) the mobo should support the cpu... it didnt... but that dosent matter any more as whats done is done....
