    Are there any special setups that i need to do to run a dual core processor or are they just plug in play. Meaning do i need to change any jumpers? I just bought a socket 939 and amd athlon 64x2 processor.

    You might check your motherboard manual/ website for information on whether you need any updates for the BIOS though. My mother board supports X2 and FX processors with a BIOS flash.

    You might just double check this with your particular board.
