If you have an AM2+ board yes it can. There is no reason to get a 965 when the 955 is cheaper and has an unlocked multiplier so you can just bump it up by 1 and have a 965 for free.

thanks man for the reply.

i has a MA770-UD3 motherboard which is HT 3.0 and AM3 quad core ready.

but yeah if you think i will work ill give it a blat and yeah i will just get a 955 then since its 50 bucks cheaper.

looking forward to the upgrade as i will be getting rid of a X2 6000+ cpu :p

Yes it can as that mb is ddr2 compatible with any 240pin module motherboards. YOu cannot use any motherboards that utilize ddr or ddr3 as they have a different RAM connector/PIN. DDR2 motherboards are still common and are the norm, they were introduced in late 2004 - early 2005.

so i thought i would update my update. so yep 800 mhz ram works no problem with the 955 BE processor, but the even cooler thing is i was able to boost my ram to 1066 mhz in my motherboards bios...
now im playin around with oc'n but i cant go to hardout as my little 350 watt psu wont take the beatings :p 

so yep lovin the cheap as chips upgrade. and boy does my com run games smooth as butter :)
