    Default Athlon 64 X2 compatibility

    I have one of the Neo 2 Platinum boards from MSI (socket 939). Does this board support the new Athlon 64 X2 if I wanted to upgrade from my Athlon 64 3500+?
    Current Set-up: Thermaltake Tsunami case, Thermaltake 480 W silent purepower, MSI K8N Neo2 Plat., AMD Athlon 64 3500+ w/Venus 12 cooler, 2x512 DDR400, ATI AIW 9800 Pro w/Kingwin VGA cooler (it looks cool anyway), Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZX Gamer, 2x160 GB SATA RAID 0 HDD.

    Make sure you flash your bios to the latest BEFORE you pull out the 3500+. Many people have made that mistake before. The NEO2 is an excellent board and I know for a fact they support it because I used to run a setup like that.
