I have a crappy WMCP78M and i bought an upgrade CPU for it AMD Athlon x2 4850e Socket AM2, I want to upgrade my main board with a decent board, with much more bios options and CPU upgrade options but i need it to support my new AMD Athlon x2 4850e Socket AM2. So i was looking on tigerdirect and newegg and none have any AM2 Boards only AM3 and AM3+ Would any of them support an AM2 CPU such as mine?
Yeah i know it would be easier to just do a MB/CPU upgrade but funds are low and i gotta work with what i got
An AM3/AM3+ mother does not support AM2 CPUs unfortunately. The CPU actually doesn't fit into the to a subtitle change in key position and if you manage to get in into the socket it won't either because AM3 motherboards require a processor with DDR3 support and.
