you have a old AM2 mobo

Heres what AMD said:

Quote:
AMD confirmed that AM2 processors will work on AM2+ motherboards and AM2+ processors will work on AM2 motherboards. However, the operation of AM2+ processors on AM2 motherboards will be limited to the specifications of Socket AM2 (1 GHz HyperTransport 2.0, and one power plane for both cores and the IMC). AM2 processors do not benefit from the faster HyperTransport 3.0 and separate power planes on AM2+ motherboards.
So yes, you should be good to go!

not at full speed HT is capped, but It wont be too big of a deal. I dont think you will even notice the difference

my stepson's rig has an M2N-SLI Deluxe, AM2+ and we put a Phenom II 720 BE in it and it works like a charm. We updated the bios to latest and it works great. Great overclocking and with 8800GT SLI it scored 16,000+ 3dmark06:
