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!
