Read this thread on compatible CPUs:

5600 series does not look to be supported.  You may also need a BIOS update, but the G6 is no longer supported and latest BIOS would require purchasing a service contract.  Besides, these systems don't make good gaming rigs.  They are designed for storing and serving data and are notorious for not being compatible with graphics cards designed for gaming,
