I have a Athlon 64 4800 x2
I need a new motherboard.. just to start with.
is this motherther compatible with 939 socket.
i read somewhere that its is .. but im not sure.

and i just found out that you can put a pci e 2.0 x16car in a pci e X16 slot.

again I have a Athlon 64 4800 x2 939 socket, wnat to but this motherbord are they compatible?

it says it supports Sempron 100 Series, Athlon II. thos that apply to my 939 socket?

No you will need a socket 939 motherboard. Ebay is the only source I can think of. If you are not sure which socket your CPU is check if you have DDR ram (s939) or DDR2 ram (s AM2) they made 4800+ for both sockets.

sell that cpu on ebay imo, they go for a lot since its pretty much the best you can get on that old socket, then buy an am3 motherboard and am3 proc (you can get a nice athlon ii tri core for $76 that would blow that thing away)
