Asus MB compatability with Dual Core Processor?

I have this two year old Asus MB:

Asus A8V Deluxe SOCKET 939 VIA K8T800Pro ATX AMD.

The processor currently is a Athlon +3000 1.8 ghz 939 socket (single core) processor.

Is it possible to upgrade to a Dual Core socket 939 processor or will my mother board not support Dual core even though the socket is the same?
Here is the processor I was thinking of upgrading to:

If I can not upgrade to this processor, what are my options for the processor upgrade.

Any help would be great, thanks.

  1. ASUS' website has a list of all compatible CPU's listed for each motherboard in the FAQ section. Here's the link to the CPU compatibility list for the A8V-Deluxe:

    A8V-Deluxe Compatible CPU's

    The FX-60 (Rev.06) is on the list, but note that it requires BIOS 1017.002 or later to work. I would suggest updating your BIOS to the latest version with your old CPU prior to upgrading.
