It will fit in but it will only work if the board supports it.

Hello, If your other pc has an am2+ cpu installed then it can't be an am3 motherboard on it. However it can possibly play with am3 CPUs depending on model. Therefore you need to tell us both PCs motherboard model to see what they can take.
