The short answer is no. It it a am2+ board.Usually a motherboard would have ddr3.To upgrade you'll need new motherboard,memory,cpu and maybe new video card.

So about $300- 400.

SOME AM2+ boards have an updates BIOS to allow AM3 CPU's. MY MA790X-UD4P board is running a 1055T AND DDR2 800. So....it is possible, just not with this particular board

AM3 CPU's are not backwards compatible with AM2+. They are ONLY if the board supports them which usually requires a BIOS flash to one that supports AM3 CPU's

You got it wrong. it's AM2+ Meaning it can have AM2 processors and AM2+ processors. and in some cases with a BIOS update AM3. MY motherboard properly supported my Am3 Processor with a BIOS update.
however according to ASUS your motherboard is not compatible with am3 processors. Phenom II are pretty much all am3
