Well, I doubt that that CPU will get any cheaper over the next couple of months. So even if it doesn't work right now, (and I'd think it would) then it will after a while.

So, worst case you pop that x2 back in for a while.

Make sure that your mobo supports it, and flash the BIOS if it needs that.

As long as your mobo can handle the x6 it'll work on linux :) 

What kind of mobo have ya got?

Semper Fi :)

Both False_Dmitry_II and linux_0 are correct, if your motherboard supports the CPU (and the likely BIOS update applied), then Ubuntu will work GREAT with the additional cores. First, verify that your motherboard is compatible with the processor and you will be good to go from there. Good luck!!!
