More about : socket am2 cpu 89w buzznut a b à CPUs a b V Motherboard July 5, 2011 11:21:41 PM Probably a Phenom 1 X3 like the one here: http://www.outletpc.com/bv8352.html#axzz1RH9KfUMC However I would check to see if your mobo would support AM3 since it is the same as socket AM2. Most Am2+ boards can take an AM3, but check with your mobo manufacturer.
