CPU Upgrade

Hello, I am planning on upgrading the processor on my biostar N68S3 Ver. 6.x to an AMD Phenom II X4 945. I have checked that they are both AM3 and it is 95w so the mobo can handle it but on the biostar website of compatible cpu's it doesnt have the exact phenom ii x4 945 that I want to get: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=506#cpu and look at the 945's sSpec/OPN# and this is the cpu I was intending to get http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-Phenom-Quad-Core-Processor-Warranty/dp/B002XNBQJQ/ref=sr_1_3?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1351162875&sr=1-3 scroll down to product details to get the sSpec/OPN#. Will it be compatible? Will I need to update the bios
