AM2 motherboard, cpu support

Hi all,

I have a standard MSI AM2 - K9AGM2 motherboard. I'm looking for a new cpu for this board. Now I have found the Athlon II x2 245 to be a decent match, however the MSI website shows no support or lack of for this board. My question is will this CPU work with the motherboard? Thanks!

    It has to be an am2+ board to be supported.

    I'd aim for an athlon x2 6000+ or so instead. You can get a decent 2.7-3ghz dualcore that'll last quite a while unless you're playing modern warfare while encoding a blueray movie. And chances are you can oc it using the stock cooler.
