  1. I don't really follow AMD sockets very closely. But the general answer is "Yes".

    AM3+ motherboards are completely compatible with AM3 CPUs.
  2. Simple answer regarding the two sockets - AM3 has less pins than AM3+

    I forget the technical details but I doubt there's a lot AMD has changed IMO.
