so a buddy of mine has a really old ddr2 Amd rig he's currently stuck with and his 3800+ is just not cutting it any more, so he's looking for a cheap upgrade to a 4 or 6 core without breaking the bank since he's a unemployed student. (14) so if anyone has any phenom's sitting around that they would be willing to sell/part ways with we are willing to try and work something out.

and for reference this is what he has for a mobo. : https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M3A78CM/specifications/

also we live in Canada so just letting you know before it becomes an issue,

Call me crazy, but isn't a Phenom II a DDR3 chip? So it wouldn't work on a AM2 socket, which is a DDR2 mobo?

AM3 Phenoms support both ddr2 and ddr3 ram so they can be used in AM2, AM2+ boards.
AM3+ has ddr3 only.
