    No they are two different sockets and are not compatible. You can't put a AM2 or AM3 processor in a FM2 socket and the othe way around. They have a different pin arraignment so it won't work.

    And you will bend the pins if you try...

    All the best Brett :)
  4. If you want to upgrade to a new CPU you will also need a new motherboard. It has been a while since socket AM2 CPUs have been produced so your system is pretty dated.
