that would depend on the motherboard. best suggestion, if find the mother board you want or have and check the cpu list for what it accepts.

AM3 CPUs are backward compatable from electrical and memory controller point of view with AM2/2+ mobos.

What you must check is - does your current mobo have a bios that supprots the AM3 proccessors.

3 possible outcomes:

1. Your mobo is ready with the correct bios level for AM3 CPUs
2. Your Mobo needs to be updated so you have to flash a bios if one exsists (See mobo manufacturer website)
3. Your mobo does not and will not ahve a bios that works for AM3 - you need to buy a new mobo.

Good luck.

Short answer yes, .........But
AM3 CPUs will work in most AM2/AM2+ boards, but most will need a bios update unless they are really new AM2+, also some of the CPUs will be limited a bit by slower Hyper Transport and memory.
As you already have a CPU from that family in the Mobo I would say that you could do it, hell I'm putting a Phenom II 955 X4 where a 7750 X2 BE once lived.

that was my 1st choice but then i changed my opinion, i realy don't know what to do now.. if i take the CPU i will not be looking for mobo upgrade at least 2-3 years, and then when i will need some new parts cause this one will be old i will then look to buy a whole new PC..because of that i changed my mind..but if i take mobo now, then i would not need to buy a new one when i'm buying a new PC..hmm... amd athlon 215, how much it can be OC? temps are low around 25C idle and maybe 35C at load..but in summer temps will go up so i'm afraid that it would not work good, because of that i want a new CPU not mobo..

Yeah but this is a free upgrade / refund isn't it? Doesn't matter what you decide on in a couple of years. Plus AMD's product line is changing to Bulldozer, so unless you upgrade to another AM3 chip in the future you'll need to change mobos regardless. If you want a better AM3 later, you may as well get a better AM3 mobo now.

What i'm trying to say in a nice way, because i've got one in my HTPC, is that the m61pmv isn't very good...
