MoBo upgrade for Phenom II X4

Current CPU - Phenom II X4 920.
Current chipset - 740G w/ DDR2 modules.

If I'd get me a 970 chipset w/ DDR3 modules, will I be able to:
a) stick my CPU on it. If yes, will I have some RAM speed limitations?
b) get me a Bulldozer later on?

Thanks in advance.

    Go to newegg.com and use their advanced search for am3+ motherboards. Select from one of those boards, even if you buy from someone else. Your 920 will run fine on one of them, and you'll have an upgrade path later on.
