After looking up the compatible programmers on avrdude, I did find arduino compatibility on the same, but the version of Arduino is unknown. I have an Arduino UNO. Can I use that to program the MCU?

Correct me if I am wrong. I am considering the chinese USBasp as suggested by one of the forum members over AVRisp and AVRdragon.

Amateur programmer.
Believe when I tell you that my struggle on here is real.

An Arduino Uno (running the Arduino as ISP sketch, and with the autoreset disabled) works fine for programming most AVRs with 128k or less of flash.  I haven't actually programmed an ATmega64, but I've done ATmega1284, ATmega8, ATmega88, Atmega32 and ATtiny85 (in addition to the use m328P and m168)
