My son and I are trying to upgrade an ASUS M2N32SCI Deluxe mother board that has an Athion 64 FX 62 125W in an AM2 socket. He wants to put in an AMD Phenom II Black Edition AM2 125W. I say they aren't compatible. How do we upgrade, a new motherboard and chip or is there a chip to use, since his current one is maxing out frequently in his games.

This is the cpu list for this motherboard. You don't list which PhenomII you are wanting to install. Anyway, if it's on the list, make sure you have the correct bios version for it.
