Question can i change to it

Your current CPU uses the SOCKET AM2+, and the new processor which you want to upgrade to uses AM3. What's the exact Model number of your MOBO, and which BIOS version does it have?

I think AMD confirmed before that an upgrade path is possible, from Socket AM2+ to AM3. I think AM3 processors work on AM2+ MOBOs, because of the memory controllers on this chip (DDR2/DDR3)...But, AM2+ processors won't work on AM3 boards, since it lacks the DDR3 mem controller.

Though, others can correct me If I'm wrong. Even the PIN config is different, 940 on AM2+ vs 941 on AM3. So I think it might work on your board, but please confirm the exact MODEL number.
