    yep they are compatible. The important thing there is that that processor is am2, and that motherboard takes am2 processors.

    i checked and checked again to make sure they were both am2. the only thing left to do is get some RAM, hard disk and floppy drive.

    when building a new computer, it is always best to have a floppy.

    You might as well have a floppy. You never know when it could come in handy.

    On a new board, a flash drive works just as well, if you know how to use it. Nowadays the space occupied by a floppy drive is better utilized by a memory card reader, or upgraded Audio stuff.
    It is handy in most computers, but the boards do not even use a BIOS or Chipset that is installed by a floppy drive. It is as close to useless as you can get, when a 512 mb flash drive can be had for under $10 and a floppy drive costs double that.
