Will a AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz be compatible in a Foxconn M61PMP-K or a Foxconn A76ML-K 3.0. I'm looking to make a budget build and just need to know how well this would work.

Won't work with either board, actually because they're both AM3 and you need an AM3+ board for any of the FX CPU's.

Thanks for the reply.. Bah. I'm shopping on NewEgg and having the hardest time matching up a nice budget build. The mobo needs to be cheap and I'm deciding on AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz or the Phenom II 965 BE. Anyone got any suggestions?

Of those 2 CPU's take the Phenom

Well it depends though, as I need a cheap mobo to support one of the two. I need suggestions mobo wise.

What's your budget for the mobo?

Neither board you posted will work with the 965 either, but the A76ML-K 3.0 will work with a 955 (95W).

Same price as your initial ones (after rebate)

It will take the Phenom or the FX

or if you can up a little this is vastly better

Again supports FX or Phenom (and should do Piledriver in future) it has SATA 6GB/s, USB 3.0

+1 for the ASRock board.

I like the suggestions wr6133 gave me, I can't really go for the ASRock like I would like too, But the Gigabyte was a really good suggestion. I must of missed that board. Thanks for the advice both of you!
