I have ordered the

AMD HDZ965FBGMBOX Phenom II X4 965 - 3.4 Ghz AM3 Black Edition CPU, Retail Packaged processor

with the

Asus M5A78L-M LX Motherboard (Micro ATX, Socket AM3+, 5200MT/S, DDR3, Core Unlocker) motherboard

from Amazon

and I have read conflicting views and I need to be sure they go together. Do you know if they do?

Yes the CPU will fit into the Motherboard and will work, though you wont be using the mobos full potential as its AM3+ while the CPU is AM3. But this wont degrade performance or anything, so its all good.

You should ALWAYS check the motherboard manufacturer's CPU Support List. JFReggie is correct in that it is not listed.
