I'm looking to make use of an old AM2+ motherboard (ECS 7050M-M) and I think this cheap AM2+ Regor derivative is a good fit, since the motherboard can't use a better AM3 processor like an Athlon II 240.

Well damn, you're right. I looked at the box and it seems I was initially mistaken, it is a plain AM2. Oh well, I was hoping to save some money on a new motherboard, but it's not like I was eagerly anticipating using that old 7050.
The original question about the processor may be irrelevant to me now, but I'd still like to know more about it, out of curiosity.
Well I didn't see that particular CPU listed as supported and apparently both revisions of those motherboards won't take 125 watt TDP CPU's however on a revision 2 motherboard on the CPU supported list it will take a 2.4 Ghz Phenom X3 8750 CPU (Triple Core) which is still available at newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
