Socket 754 is an amd64 socket, so that'll be fine (unless there are socket 754 
Semprons without 64-bit? The AMD website doesn't say in so many words "this 
is not a 64-bit processor", but neither does it tout 64-bitness. In that 
case, it's not the socket type that's most interesting, but the CPU family 
(Athlon64 vs. Sempron) that is.).
