Do you know what socket is on the board? That's something you'd need to know before buying a new cpu.

Processor
• Supports AMD® AM2 Socket K8 Athlon™ 64 X2, Athlon™ 64, Athlon™ FX, and Sempron™ processors under 89 watt power consumption
• Support transfer rate of 2000/1600/1200/800/400 mega-transfers per second.

the board


so it looks like you could throw any athlon in there thats am2+/am3 that supports ddr2 ram
and is under under 89 watt

and should be good

any AM2+ or AM3 will work as long it is under 89 watts
post #8 of 17
could it take a 95watt? if your willing to risk it (or maybe under volt it) youd have a much bigger list of cpus to chose from
