I replaced my motherboard with the gatewayDX4300-03. My original one had amd quad core (2x4)8Gb

9750/2.4GHz  64 bit sp1. I upgrated ram to ddr3 (4x4)1600GB  and found out my cpu isnt compatible with this. So my question is what type amd3+ will work with the new motherboard                                                                                                                                             specs   capacity  1x1 TB

                                                                                                                    interf type  SATA 3Gb/s

                                                                                                                    transfer rate  56Kbps

                                                                                                                     graphics  ATI radeon                                                                                                                                                HD4650

                                                                                                                                     1GB  HDMI,VGA

:welcome:    Debbie Collins,

 

 

I replaced my motherboard with the gatewayDX4300-03. 

 

 

We will need some clarification before we can give you a definite answer, GatewayDX4300-03 is the name of the computer system itself and not the MB, specs here can you tell us the brand and model name or number of your new MB.

 

JAFYI: AM3+ CPUs are not compatible with AM2 or AM2+ boards, the pins are not the same and AM3+ CPUs do not have DDR2 memory controllers

 

A similar upgrade question for the same computer here

Being an OEM board the general information available is very basic and the support from Gateway here is the same, is the MB here the one that you have.

 

FWIW: The two best 95W CPUs that would normally** be compatible with the MB at the link are compared here ** I say normally because being an OEM board if a BIOS upgrade is required the CPUs would not be compatible as there is no BIOS update available from Gateway.

 

You are welcome btw  :)

is the MB here the one that you have.    Yes this is mb but it was not for ddr2  our memory would not fit  we had to get the ddr3 and amd cpu we had was now also not compatible wrong number of pins  so my question was about getting the amd3+

Looks like your MB is a later revision AM3 (or a very outside chance AM3+) socket type but honest answer is I would suggest that you take it to a local Tech and have it confirmed first hand, as previously mentioned being an OEM board finding any information on it has proved difficult, this is nothing unusual as OEM brands will often throw anything in a computer when it is coming to its end of marketing life just so that they can get rid of them, not helpful at all to people like yourself.

Not heard back from you Debbie Collins, have you managed to determine what socket the MB has.
