Unfortunately you have am AM3 board which will not support Bulldozer. Although the sockets are physically the same size AM3+ are compatible with older AM3 chips, but not the other way around.
thank you for the quick reply... shame but oh well..i'm very happy with my current pc it can handle anything easily. it was able to play BF3 alpha and so on with ease so i reckon i have some time before i would have to upgrade...
could you recommend any that are by asus (hopefully the exact same sort of board) but with am3+ compatibility...i've grown used to using that asus board and would prefer that.
