AMD Athlon AD750KWOHJBOX FM2 type Socket compatability

I've been looking at getting an AMD Athlon AD750KWOHJBOX to start upgrading my Compaq Pressario PC to a gaming PC. I dont know if the Pegatron Corperation NARRA5 motherboard from mid 2010 is compatable with the FM2 type socket on the prossesor. if anyone knows please help. Thanks

I had to Google that product number to find it's a AMD Athlon X4 750K socket FM1. This mean you board must have a FM1 socket.

It is not compatible with your AM2 socket.

Thanks for the help! Are there any CHEEP quad core prossessors that have the am2 socket?

You can plug in your specs in the AMD page. AMD Processors for Desktops: AMD Phenom?, AMD Athlon? FX, AMD Athlon? X2 Dual-Core, AMD Athlon?, and AMD Sempron? Processor=

I was thinking all the AM socket CPU were interchangeable, but I can't find it
documented anywhere.
Check your BIOS specs for CPU support too.

I am wrong, it's the memory controller that is different.

So any of the prosessors on the list will work?

This would be the best suggestion if the board is AM2+ It will and can use a AM3 chip

AM2 is the socket before you might be able to find the first Phenom chips that might be compatible
here on ebay a big list and the Phenom would be the best choice am2 processor | eBay

Ok i had to do some research if you are running a Sempron 140 you are running AM3

Where in the heck did you guys get AM2 and FM1 ?????


Anyway you want a good CPU that will work get a Phenom 965BE that should be plenty and add better ram i am assuming you are capped at 1066 or 1333 mhz so i would buy at least 8 gb DDR2orDDR3 if supported and a good Video card and change the PSU just saying
