Minor upgrade due to DDR3. If it's a straight swap I would do it.

I'd do it. That way at the very least you can move over the RAM if you decide to upgrade in the future.

Is 870 extreme 3 AMD3+?(I think its AM3!)

What is the advantage of AM3+ over AM3?

AM3+ will be able to accept bulldozer CPU's.

unfortunately it is rev1.0 that is AM3!
But I was so interested in getting 955BE!
How much will the Bulldozer cost (about)?

Of course YOU should do this deal. The question is: Why would your "friend" want to do this, and would you still be "friends" after he figures out that he got the crappy end of the stick?

Edit to add: And,as a bonus, your "ATI enthusiast" tagline will make a lot more sense with an AMD rig- no more trying to pound a square peg into a round hole...
