Hello, Charles here...

Will a Athlon x2 7750 cpu work in a AM3 socket MB? This Board: ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0.

Thanks very much.

No it will not, AM3 CPUs will work in some AM2 and AM2+ boards, but AM2 and AM2+ CPUs will not work in AM3 boards, they have two extra pins which physically keep them from fitting, they also lack the DDR3 memory controller so even if you got it in it wouldnt be able to talk to the RAM.
