My mother wants to upgrade her pc. its a cheap machine from 2008 it has a am2 motherboard would the 640 work with it? I will also put a 7750 in it for a semi decent gpu.

If the motherboard is an AM2+ and has a bios update for the newer cpu's then you can, however if its just a plain AM2 you cant use an Athlon X4.
