Ive been looking to upgrade my CPU for awhile now from a AMD x2 5050e 2.6ghz to a AMD phenom II x4 940 but im getting a mixed response to if my motherboard will support it. One person from the HP tech said my mobo doesnt it support it while others say it will. I've tried several places for mixed opinions and im trying to set the record straight. My mobo is as follows

Can my motherboard support the 940? If not please let me know if it can only support 1 series phenom thanks.
The rest of my specs are
Sapphire 1gb 5570 HD
Wind Vista (64)
750Watt Raid MAX psu

Yea i was reading through some forums and stuff and a guy updated his bios and was able to use the phenom ii x 940 so i probably just end up buying that just to make sure.
