I think that MB is an AM2 cpu socket. The AMD Phenom II x4 965 is for an AM3 cpu socket.

Your Right, I left the 6 off the Violet when I looked it up.

Motherboard Specifications, M2N78-LA (Violet) | HP® Support

So you should be ok with an AM3 socket then.

The Phenom II X4 965be is the chip to get then and it runs great and overclocks well ! I've seen it for as little as $79.00 but I would get it sooner than later or they could all be gone one day.
