    the CPU is an AM3+ and the MB is an AM3. typically the CPU's are forward compatible, not backwards compatible....

    so an AM3 CPU will work in an AM3+ Motherboard, not the other way around.

    right now I can't get to gigabytes motherboard page to confirm the CPU in the Supported CPU listing.
