Windows 7 64

Well I went to the PC shop today and after a lot of time and, I was speaking to one of the engineers and he said has I checked that the MB would work with the processor I said well it is AM3 Is in it? Not that simple, Nothing with computers seems to be where I am conserned, anyway had to change to a Gigabyte MB 880GMA-UD2H, They was good enough to install the processor and fan and memory and configured it all so just have to wire it in and bolt it into the box.
