Default 754 Socket processors compatible with 939 Socket motherboards?

Are 754 socket processors compatible with 939 socket motherboards? I'm looking into upgrading the motherboard I have, but not the processor (AMD Athlon 64 3200+).

Nope, they are 2 different socket type you want to get the same socket motherboard and CPU.

Different sockets. Sorry, but you're gonna have to upgrade the CPU as well.

You can get this motherboard.

It's from Jetway and it has Socket 754 AND Socket 939 so you can use your current CPU and when the time comes, just replace it with a Socket 939 one. It's even nForce4 and has a PCI-Express 16X slot. Cheap too...only $86.00.
