AMD confuses me - again

#1

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.

Thanks:bow:

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.
