Hello, I'm wanting to upgrade my Processor- http://www.amazon.com/AMD-Phenom-1-8GHz-4x512KB-Quad-Co... with this one- http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite...

Can I do it? I ask this because my motherboard- http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?InvtId=A74ML-K says it supports amd phenom II am3 socket, but I'm confused because it's an am2+ socket motherboard.

Please help :) 

Thanks

The support list looks like it does not have any Zosma processors or maybe it was last updated before they were released. It should work, but you can't be sure it will be recognized unless there is a BIOS update available.

Wait, so in order for me to upgrade my processor I need to update the bios?
