I'm aiming for a AMD Athlon II X3 435 Rana 2.9GHz =)

Its a great chip, I bought one a few days ago.
Unfortunately it wont work in your mobo.

The best you can do is an Athlonx2 under 90 watts.

My recommendation buy one of these and the Rana

And ram of course. 170$ for basically a whole new computer!

Actually Its quite good.
and it gives you the POSSIBILITY to unlock the x3 435 to a quadcore with 6mb l3 cache.
It worked for me very easily, but all luck of the draw.

I meant , does the bios let you configure the speed of the processor.
