  1. Will the CPU work with that motherboard? Yes it will. Should without any issue. Its an AM3 CPU so it will work with a AM3+.

    you have been using it until now so adding ddr3 mem setup will just add a performance boost to your current setup. make sure the memory is cl8 or cl9 if you cant find cl8 in your desired memory vendor and 2x4gb is really all you need for gaming right now. when you do happen to upgrade the processor go with the 8350 instead of the 9xxx series as they are basically just pre-overclocked 8350s and you can get your own overclocks to do that. and a aftermarket cpu cooler if you decide to go that route
