Yup, fill out the Spec list the best you can. Try to include mobo manufacturer and model, RAM manufacturer and model, etc.

As the posted above said, the Athlon 64s are unlocked downwards so you won't be able to use any multi above stock but you can use the ones down from it. Just make sure that you have Cool'n'Quiet disable in your BIOS or else you won't be able to use any other multi.
