Upgrading RAM and CPU

So, basically I have a Acer F690GVM mobo with AMD Phenom 9500 and I was thinking about upgrading my CPU and RAM, so I was wondering if my mobo supports am3 or am3+ sockets because mine is am2... I could upgrade it but if I can get away without upgrading it it would be nice :) I bought a GTX 550Ti and my CPU seems to bottleneck it a bit.

    Likely you will need a bios update but as it says above their chips are backwards compatible.

    Info on a bios upgrade mod, don't know if this will be any use to you.
