My motherboard is an ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe, socket 939, and the processor im running right now is an AMD Anthlon 64 3200+. the one im thinking about upgrading to is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103545 so would i be able to use that with my motherboard? i cant find anything that says my motherboard isnt compatible with a dual core processor... but i can find anything that says it is either:uhm: help figuring this out would be much appreciated.

As long as the processor matches the socket number that the motherboard supports, then it won't matter if it's a single core or a dual-core processor.

In your case. Your motherboard supports S939. So only S939 processors will work with it. Same goes with AM2(S940), S775 .. etc.

Just be sure to match them.

It will work fine. Your motherboard will run any socket 939 processor including the 4600+ you're considering.

I have a similar board (A8N32-SLI Deluxe) running a 4400+ dual core.

That's so wrong it isn't even funny. Go forth and learn something.

Fortunately for the OP, in this case you are correct nonetheless. The A8N-SLI Dlx will support any of AMD's dual core S939s.

You are so right you need to know what chipset it got to, very importent.

I was under the impression any S939 mobo will accept a dual core chip, though a bios upgrade may be required, and that only the Pentium D and Core 2 duo needed new chipsets.

I thought I left something important out -> "(depending on the chipset)." =\

Thanks "C38368."

In the case of socket 939 products, any recent chipset revision will run a dual core A64 to my knowledge, sometimes after a BIOS update. However, the idea that "if the chip fits, it'll work" is incorrect; Conroe will only run on P965 or the latest revision of 975X, but it's in a socket T package. A socket 478 Prescott won't run on an older 845P chipset, even though they're mechanically compatible.
