According to ASUS the K8V-MX Supports AMD Athlon64 and AMD Sempron single core processors, not dual core processors.

Sorry but your MB doesn't support a dual core CPU.

If you want to continue with ASUS I suggest choosing one of the Asus P5Q series that have the 775 socket
Here is a link:

If you buy one of this you also will have to buy matching cpu+memory sticks+graphic card.

Good luck and good upgrade

Yup, your system is old and dated, do not spend any money on it, it wont be worth it, save some cash and get a complete new system, you will thank yourself for it later!
