    You cannot run an AMD processor on an Intel motherboard. Even Core i3 processor won't run on that motherboard, cause the socket is different. U will need to buy a new motherboard anyways, if u plan to change the processor.

    Get the Asus M5A78L-M V2 motherboard, its pretty cheap. Sell ur old processor and motherboard for some discount at the computer shop.

    No this motherboard would support only Intel Pentium processors. Yours is an AMD Processor.

    No. That is an lintel motherboard. You need a socket 775 cpu. You would need a cheap motherboard like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as…

    You will also probably need new memory as most 775s took ddr2 ( but check, some took ddr3). If your OS came bundled with the computer you may also need to replace it.
