Generally AM3 is backward compatable with AM2+ processors. jj463rd a b à CPUs January 1, 2011 12:18:51 AM Which MCP61PM-GM motherboard from ECS or is it a Gateway (and Emachines version) ? Gateway states that it is a AM2 type motherboard http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006254R/4... Look under specifications http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006254R/4... "Supports AMD® AM2 Socket K8 Athlon™ 64 X2, Athlon™ 64, Athlon™ FX, and Sempron™ processors under 89 watt power consumption" No AM2+ nor AM3+ CPU is listed as supported plus the Phenom X4 9850 is a 125 watt TDP CPU clearly above the 89 watts TDP stated (although they incorrectly stated 89 watt power consumption).
