Best to simply make a new "reply" rather than go back and edit a previous one.

Go to the website of the motherboard manufacturer.

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1
 
 

Socket AM2/AM2+. (No AM3, apparently.)

CPU support list:

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS M3N78 PRO

To repeat an answer: you won't need a new copy of Windows, even if your copy is OEM. You might trigger the need to activate Windows again, but you should have no trouble doing that.

I had seen that on the spec page, but under cpu support list it has AM3 cpu's listed, so that it was i am trying to get a correct answer on.. I am assuming that they just did not correct that page, but who knows, they may have screwed the support list page
