yes, just obviously won't take advantage of anything AM3+ (usually a slight increase in HT frequency). But otherwise nice and backwards compatiable

Yes AM3 cpu will work on AM3+ board.

AM3+ cpu (bulldozer) may also work on AM3 board with a bios update, but not all so better check with the board manufacturer.
