Note I'm using ddr2 ram (yes I know...) If that will effect anything

Extra info about pc if needed
MOBO = Listed above
Processor = Phenom x4 9150e @ 1.8ghz (see why I need to upgrade?)
ram = DDR2 8gbs
graphics = gtx 460 (factory oc) (see the bottleneck?)

I can't see why it wouldn't work, it somehow supports newer E0 stepping instructions (the mobo), the athlon is a cut down thuban, they are both 95W, they are both AM3, there is one difference- the voltages- the althon uses 0.825 - 1.400v and the phenom uses 0.975 - 1.425v.

If the BIOS recognizes it, it should work.
