More about what difference
  1. hehehe because I have such an old motherboard?
  2. My question is why are you looking @ such old cpus to begin with?
  3. Also if you live near a MC you can get certain Ph II and Athlon II cpus and get a motherboard for free.
  4. I own this mobo http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socketam2/ecsMCP61SM-GM.shtml

    BTW I'm buying something in 30 mins, if you have some revelation to share :D I would love to hear it, if not I will be buying the 34$ (after rebate) CPU.
  5. That motherboard should be able to use it right?
  6. The AthlonX2-6000

    1024KB L2 Cash and 3Ghz


    The AthlonX2-5200

    512KB L2 Cash and 2.7Ghz


    However note this, in the support page of your mobo it can only take the X2-6000 that runs at 89W

    The link of tigerdirect shows the following serial number
    ADX6000IAA6CZ

    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon%2064%20X2%206000%2B%20-%20ADX6000IAA6CZ%20%28ADX6000CZBOX%29.html

    That is a 6000 of 125W (the majority of them are 125W and I never knew there was an 89W version)
    (Edit... even tigerdirect shows it's the 125W version)

    So... all in all, get the 5200, for the price, it's a fantastic deal.
