As far as I am aware it will have to be a sempron and duron respectively however run a google search for each mobo and that should be able to give you more info.

If you're not too knowledgeable about this sort of things two things to mention. Be sure you have identified the motherboards correctly there is for example a Gigabyte GA-7VKMP-P as well as the one you listed click here If you look on the boards its printed on it usually sometimes between some of the slots.
Secondly pay attention to the BIOS numbers required as some boards will need the BIOS flashed to allow you to use the newer faster processors.
