  1. Nope, the Gibabyte board is based on an intel X58 Chipset and uses the LGA1366 CPU socket. An AMD CPU needs an AMD motherboard with a Chipset that supports AMD CPU's. The AMD Phenom(tm) 9950 Quad-Core Processor requires an AM2+ socket. Here are a few choices that should support your CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007625%20600007945&IsNodeId=1&name=AM3%2fAM2%2b%2fAM2

    The Radeon HD 5850 card is a good graphics card that will work in any mobo that supports PCIe 2.0.
