Will a Athlon 64 2800+ fit and run properly into a Socket AM2 motherboard?
..Just a guess here but the AM2 socket has 940 contacts and the 754 has 754 contacts. I'd say negative...
Yes, I'm having trouble locating a socket 754 motherboard. i have a good Athlon 64 2800+ that I'd like to use
You might have to resort to eBay.
I found some at Amazon.com. I searched for socket 754 and came up with this: Click here.
there are good deals on 754 mobo's on EBay too
