  1. I wouldn't go below 450W. Get a quality PSU - EVGA, XFX, Seasonic.
  2. I don't believe a FM2 socket CPU is going to work on a AM3+ socket motherboard
  3. Oh, snap. Good catch revernt.

    you need anther board for that CPU , then get a quality PSU 450 watts plus , maybe 500 if you plan on adding a gpu later on . Seasonic , Corsair or Antec are good .
