basically it tells you the biggest cpu you can use is likely to be an amd 6400x2 if your board supports 140w cpu's if it only supports 130watt then your limited to the 5600 or below.
truth is there isnt much of an upgrade path for am2 boards at least not officaly. but a lot of amd 940 cpus will work but are not listed as supported. so you may even be able to run an athlon x4 but unlikely to run a phenom 2

The motherboard most likely is limited to 65W or 89W processors. I haven't found a single person who upgraded to a processor faster than the 6000 x2 which still cost more than $30 on eBay.

The first link ( is up for me.
