    Hi My bro got given one of these Mobo's today: http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=45392&criteria=Motherboards for AMD Processors&doy=21m8

    He did not buy it, my cousin gave him it!! She got it for a steal on ebay or something.

    It says "sempron ready - socket a" i found this cpu on amazon:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000ALAJM8/026-4959376-0370030?v=glance&n=560798&s=gateway&v=glan

    The thing is, would that cpu fit in the foxconn mobo? would a socket 754 fit in a socket a? if it doesnt could you find me another one that would? This would go great as a birthday present for my nan as she only has a packard bell club 75, we could build a real bargain pc!

    I am also building my own PC, Not with that crappy mobo though :)

    Nope. Not compatible. Socket A = 453 pins. Socket 754 = 754 pins.
