Im wondering if I can upgrade from a Phenom X4 9600 to a Phenom II X6 1035T

My PC (iv put in other upgrades, just need new cpu)

I know the new CPU is AM3 and my motherboard is a MCP61PM-GM that is socket AM2+ and AM3 CPus shouldnt be supported until I found this.

Would it be possible for me to upgrade to that as well? Any help is appreciated.

First of all you need to check if the new chip and its pin type will fit the board, so you need to know what pin type the cpu socket will except. Have a check on the Cpu supported list of cpu Chips, and the wattage type the board will support of the Cpu.
A custom Bios is often a risk and may result in bricking the board.
The end result will be you will have to buy a new board and a cpu if the bios mod does not work.
