No jim you will have to get a new board too.
the a7v8x-la is a Socket A (Socket 462) board
The amd64 uses the 939 socket.

Jim:
This motherboard is indeed a socket A OEM for Compaqs, and the best processor you can have is an Athlon XP 3200+ socket A.

You don't see the solution, but if you aren't going to get the Xp processor socket A, it is to buy an Athlon 64 and a new motherboard.
