I just put one of these combos together, but I don't think the CPU is compatible with your application (though I must plead ignorance on the subject of AMD CPUs - I haven't knowingly used an AMD CPU since I built a box with the "totally awesome" AMD 586 chip, with the expanded 16 K cache... (think it was referred to as the 486++ CPU - used on some SunPC boards for SBUS bixes)
