Is this CPU comptable with my motherboard?

Hello there :D, after destroying my AMD Phenom X4 9750 :fou: , I want to make sure that this new processor I wish to buy is compatible with my motherboard, My processor is: M2N78-LA (Violet), and the processor I am buying for it is a: AMD Phenom II X4 925 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103940) is it compatible? Thanks :D

    Yup, go ahead. AM2+ supports AM2+ CPUs AND AM3 CPUs as long as they stay below the TDP, which it does.

    Yep. THat is the way AMD did their upgrade path. Buy an AM2+ CPU and board and replace the CPU with AM3 when it comes out! :)

    I have even ran an AM3 CPU in an AM2+ board also. :)
