AMD confuses me - again



I want to upgrade my CPU and think that this one will work fine, but they seem to change their socket descriptions more often then I can keep up:eek:

I have an ASUS M3A78-EM mobo.

I would like to use an AMD Athlon ll x2 250 Regor 3.9GHz
(or similar). Will it work on this board? Any known glitches??

Yes, I know it’s low end, but this is for business and internet use, not gaming.



IC2, that cpu will work, but you first have to flash the latest firmware. It needs to be 0802 or higher to work with an AM3 cpu. Asus Link


Thought so - thanks. And yes, I will do the flash as it has not been updated since it was assembled.
