Are you sure you're looking at the right thing?
That is definitely not an Intel board.

Not an Intel board at all, but still not compatible; the MB uses Socket 939, but the CPU is Socket AM2.

Zenthar beat me to it:

The motherboard is socket 939 and the processor is AM2.
Not compatible.

Zenthar and evongugg both beats me. That what I get for not refreshing before posting.

Its a socket 939 motherboard. You processor is AM2. AM2 = DDR2 IMC +940 pins. Won't work in any way shape or form with a 939 pin socket and DDR.

Could probably find some on eBay, but what what exactly are you trying to do? Sometimes it costs less to buy "newer" low-end stuff than trying to find working older stuff ...

Just wanted to see if it's possible to upgrade the CPU without buying a new board.

Thanks for your help everyone.

Some stores still hold them (like TigerDirect), but it isn't cheap. As I said before, you could probably get a better CPU AND motherboard for the price of the S939 CPU alone ...
