  1. Yes you'll need a new motherboard.
  2. I agree, AM2 mobos are very outdated and mobos, like everything in electronics nowadays, gets better with every generation. You should just get a new one. I recommend the Asus M5A97 LE mobo. It is $60 after rebates and is an excellent ATX mobo. Here is the link to it:

    Check your MB compatibiliy list. Almost every Brand has a compatibility list.

    But thinking that it is AM3+ the no. :))
  4. Good idea, but I doubt it will be compatible.
