I would really encourage you to do more research. I believe that the 754 socket is really old and nothing new will fit in it. Not even with a hammer. For sure, the 754 socket has - you guessed it - 754 pins. All the sockets which came after it (939, 940, AM2, AM2+, etc) had ~940.

I'm not an expert here, but I really think you're looking at a new system.

I believe that MoBo has the 754 socket, which dates back to 2003.... I don't think you're going to find CPUs still for sale which fit that socket. At a certain point, you're throwing good money after bad... I think you should start anew.

thats what i was starting to think but then i got to looking and i found one that fits a am1 socket. if my research os correct (which is quite possible NOT correct) then a am2 would work.
