CPU/Processor Socket: 939
Supports AMD Athlon64, AMD Sempron and Athlon 64 X2 processors

See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...cname=c00496280

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_939

I will just add a note that Socket 939 processors...also have AM2 counterparts, in some cases. An AM2 CPU will not work with your board.

Sure, as long as it's socket 939, not AM2. The attached chart illustrates what I'm trying to say.

http://www.activewin.com/reviews/hardware/...s/amd/6000_am2/

You see, there are multiple models of CPUs...that are not capable of being used on the other board. Socket 939 boards were subsequently replaced by AM2 boards. So there is overlap among processor models.

You can only use the processors reflecting Socket 939, so remember that when you go shopping.
