Can I put an AMD dual core in this motherboard?

Hi,

I have this motherboard: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...=GA-K8NS%20Pro

Can I put an AMD dual core processor in this one? If so, could you suggest which one would be the best bang for the buck?

I would go with no

"Socket 754"

I am pretty sure there are no dual core socket 754 processors, they are all 939 and AM2, neither of which will fit into your mobo

where are you going to find socket 754 cpu's that aren't leftovers?

you can get a an nforce 550 motherboard with the new AM2 socket for like $80 and the CPU prices are the same as the old 939. why go with the old junky crap?

Because going to AM2 means upgrading to DDR2 ram. If you want to go dual core, maybe look for a s939 board and buy a s939 x2 processor.
