You're going to have to replace the motherboard if you want to switch processor brands.

It supports up to
    * Socket: 939
    * Supports AMD Athlon 64 X2 (up to 4800+) and Sempron (up to 3200+) processors

And yes, you cannot move to Intel without replacing the motherboard. The 939 was also way ahead of Intel when it was introduced.
