Im planning on getting an Asrock N68C-S UCC AM2+ Micro-ATX Motherboard, it has am2+ socket.

Is an AM2 CPU compaitble with this motherboard?

Are there any performance hits? i will be upgrading the cpu eventually to an am2+ cpu

Thanks! and it also appears i could put an AM3+ cpu in there as well :)  , although the Hyper Transport link wouldn't be quite up to scratch :/

AM3 up to 95watt tdp which is better than a AM2+ CPU!
