    I have 2 of those motherboards as well. It should take all the AM2/AM2+ and the 125W AM3 processors.

    WOW those 4850e have become extinct. I just bought one a few months ago for $35. Looks like you're on a tight budget so .....

    It's slower, but comes with a stock heatsink

    I would recommend the first one and get an after market heatsink.

  2. The Athlon X2 line along with 65nm manufacturing has finally been phased out by AMD. The new Athlon II X2 line up on 45nm is the replacement and they're noticably more powerful too.
