heres a list of supported cpu's. you can always find a list from the motheboards website. notice how it depends on the bios version for what cpu is supports.

140 Watt TDP (Phenom IIX4 965 (HDZ965FBK4DGI),3.4GHz,140Watt). The Thermal Design Power (TDP) is the average maximum power a processor can dissipate while running commercially available software. TDP is primarily used as a guideline for manufacturers of thermal solutions (heatsinks/fans, etc) which tells them how much heat their solution should dissipate.

yes it says it works with bios 1006, which looks like the original bios, so you should be fine.

so would any higher version of bios work with that too? (once their is one) and does that mobo takes any time off ram because i have ddr3 ram on my current mobo. .would that work on that mobo that im getiing?

yes newer versions would be fine. as far as ram goes, i suppose it depends on what speed ddr3 you are currently using.

that motherboard supports up to ddr3- 1866mhz. im pretty sure your old ram would work, but i usually configure intel systems, so i cant give u a definite. check the sticker on the ram itself and see what it actually is, rather than what its currently running at.

i have multiple programs and i also check inside and it all says the same speed.. so it would work right? i need a definite answer

1497mhz ddr3 doesn't make sense to me. im sure you can plug it in and it can work, but your cpu supports faster ram i would believe.
