MB only supports the original Phenom, not the Phenom II

Yup, go ahead. AM2+ supports AM2+ CPUs AND AM3 CPUs as long as they stay below the TDP, which it does.

Yep. THat is the way AMD did their upgrade path. Buy an AM2+ CPU and board and replace the CPU with AM3 when it comes out! :)

I have even ran an AM3 CPU in an AM2+ board also. :)
