yes you would as long as its the AMD ATHLON64 3000+ socket 939 and not the 754 one. the 939 3000+ and the socket 939 FX-55 has the same socket so its just remove and re-insert

Yeah, get a 3500.
FX processors are more for server based, and real gamer based machines that need all the power they can get, and are too expensive in my opinion.
Most people make do with a normal spec AMD As long as its a 939pin one though, you can update at a later date rather easily

I beleive there is a difference between the FX processors and the regular Athlon 64's up untill the 4000+ speed. From what I read, the only difference between the 4000 and the FX-55 is the speed...
