ASUS P8H61-M LE compatible 3rd generation processor and graphic card

Hello, i've seen this page for so long, i read every thread about this and every answers too, here have a lot of people that know about hardware. (Sorry for my english)

I have this doubt, i have a motherboard since November 2012, the ASUS P8H61-M LE, with a G630 processor and an old ATI 5450 1GB, and i want to upgrade my PC for new games and video rendering but i have a low budget, i can only buy an i5 processor for $200~ and a video card for less of $190~.

My main options are the Intel i5 3470 or 3330 but here is my question, the ASUS P8H61-M LE are compatible with this third generation processor? I read about a BIOS upgrade but i have the BIOS version 4203 (I used CPU-Z to get this information) and i just want to know i can buy one of the processors above for this motherboard?

My second question is, this motherboard is totally compatible with the R9 270? Because i see another page that list the compatibles graphic cards with this motherboard but none of the R9 or R7 appears, maybe the page is wrong or is truth that they are not compatible?

If one of you have this build or know someone with the same motherboard please can tell me? Or if one of you or experts knows another graphics card and processors that can play new games or have the same performance in my motherboard, please tell me, thanks.

    Yes, the 3470 has been supported since BIOS 4104 - the 270 will be perfectly fine also

    Hello again, i bought the R9 270 with the EVGA 500w but i don't know what processor buy, because i see in the ASUS page that they have 3 versions of the P8H61 M-LE (Rev 2.0, and Rev 3) but when i use CPU-Z, i see that says "rev x.0x", what is that? What version of the motherboard i have? Thanks.

    Thanks, now i know, is the normal ASUS P8H61 without revision, only compatible with 2nd generation, maybe i'll buy an i5 2500 or something like that, is a good processor.
