go to the manufacturers website, check the mobo manual if you have it, or just post it here and someone will tell you

Oh I haven't bought them yet, I was just wondering before I did, I'll check the manufacturer's websites. Thanks, sorry for asking dumb questions.

Always look for a matching socket (eg AMD64 socket 939CPU needs a socket 939 mobo) But this doesn't always work, so just post it on TF and we will check for compatibility.
