Closed Is this CPU compatible with my Motherboard? Tags: CPUs Compatibility Motherboards Last response: November 30, 2011 7:23 AM in CPUs Share jacobyg November 30, 2011 1:30:35 AM According to Speccy, my motherboard is an ECS-USA GeForce6100PM-M2 (Socket AM2 ) My current processor is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+. Someone purchased an AMD Black Edition Phenom II X6 1100T as a gift for me, but it's still in the process of being shipped. (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...) Will it work, or do I need to buy a new motherboard? (I'm sorry. I'm sure questions like these get annoying, but I'm not that bright in this area.)
