My System Specs

Default AM2 processor - really hard to find

I'm building up my old system for a friend.

Long story short, I killed my old AM2 Phenom quad core.

I'm trying to find a replacement that will fit on my old board (M2A-VM)

Anyone know where I can get one? NCIX doesn't have any listed.

A friend of mine has an old AM2 dual core that I can use as a last resort, but I'd really prefer to use a quad core if i can find one.

You likely will need to update your bios, but most Athlon II and phenom II are supported by the motherboard (looks like 95w and less cpus).

Compatible CPU

You can try Phenom II 945 a try. It is a 95 w CPU.
