and budget ??? i would really say even if you upgrade dont think of overclocking it and no 125w TDP CPU on that 3+1 Phase motherboard i would say a 960T would do great if it fits your budget

Socket AM3 processors are able to run on Socket AM2 and AM2+ motherboards with appropriate bios updates, but not vice-versa. AM3 processors have a new memory controller supporting both DDR2 and DDR3 SDRAM, allowing backwards compatibility with AM2 and AM2+ motherboards. Since AM2 and AM2+ processors lack the new memory controller, they will not work on AM3 motherboards.
beside the cpu support list has it check it out
