    No they are not compatible. The motherboard has an FM2 socket while the FX 4130 uses an AM3+ socket.

    Google the motherboard model, click on the Gigabyte website link, click on the support and download tab and look up the CPU support list.

    The FX4130 doesn't have an integrated graphics processor.

    If that's what you want, you want to keep that motherboard and swap the processor.

    You would need to specifically check whether the motherboard you want has integrated video.

    I'm actually not the best candidate to be asking that question for two reasons. I shop in dollars (which could be a difference in inventory) and prefer Intel (which is where the bulk of my knowledge is at). I try to help out with AMD systems where I can, but actually recommending specific parts is a whole new game.

    I'm not sure if you are understanding, so to be clear.
    If you want an "integrated graphics card", you cannot use that processor. You'd be looking at an FM2 processor.
    If you keep that processor and buy a motherboard to support it, you will have to add in a discreet video card.

    well :D now I'm confused as hell , so , I have to change the processor if I want a integrated video card , or , I just change the motherboard and take one with a normal graphic card , right ?

    Asus M5A78L-M LX3 - ATI Radeon HD 3000 - $45
    ASRock N68C-GS FX - NVIDIA GeForce 7025 - $45
    GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2 - ATI Radeon HD 3000 - $47

    Those are among the cheapest, but if you think about it, there is a reason they are cheap. However if you are not interested in having a feature rich motherboard, there is no reason to buy one that is feature rich.

    Lets find out why hellokitty[hk] is suggesting those motherboards I listed, will not provide video with the processor you have chosen.

    Well , you are the pros here , cliffordcooley , you say that is possible to get the video card integrated with that processor ?

    Why don't you tell us what you're using the computer for?
    Why is it that you want an FX4130? Are you going to have a discreet graphics card?

    cliffordcooley I seem to recall that nVidia chipset AMD boards were a little iffy, but that was many years ago I can't really trust my memory at this point.
    One thing to pay attention to is that the power requirements for the FX series, are pretty hefty. Good motherboards have had their VRMs blown out from overclocked FX8xxx series processors. Obviously the FX4130 isn't a quad core and might not be overclocked in this case but one of the motherboards list 95w power, which is close to what an fx4130 could draw.
    Other than that those two are 760G chipsets, which is a good chipset but it's many years old now.
    In this case I think I would use a 970 based motherboard, like a BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS for similar pricing.
