Default upgrade to AMD Athlon 64 FX-55

Hey, i just bought a cheap system that "fell off the truck" the only reason i bought it is cuz i only paid $200 for it and it came with 2 250 gb hard drives 19" monitor and 2 gig of ram. but the its a ****ty integrated motherboad with a celeron 3 GHz processor. Can i pick up a new motherboard and slap a AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 in there with out any problems? what mother board would you suggest?

its a shady deal.

sure there would be no problem if the board is using DDR ram not DDR2 and the psu isn't proprietary.
