You do realize that AM2 CPU's are incompatible with Socket 939? Nice idea but not going to happen.

ouch did not know that. I was listing what the gigabyte website said was compatible.

looks like the only ones that are 939 are expensive: AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.2 GHz Processor

Edit: ^ this 939 being here still doesn't mean its compatible. even it the mobo website says it is, I dont have as much knowledge on this subject.....
sorry for all the google shopping links, its just a good way of finding stuff...

it seems there are dual core CPU's from amd athlon for the 939 Revisiting the Past Part 1: Dual-Core CPUs For Socket 939

But I digress, as this is getting off topic. I still would not suggest going this path to upgrade this. I would opt for a new build as it would be about the same cost, but a way way way better machine.
