I'm not sure whether my current motherboard will match my new CPU

Hello, I recently purchased an AMD Fx-8350 and I currently have an Angelica 2 motherboard (M3970AM-HP). It came with the HP ENVY h8-1534 Desktop PC. I would like to know if I am in need of a new motherboard or if i'll be fine with the one I currently have. Thank you for reading this!

P.S. I also purchased a GTX 960 4GB so i'd be able to play games such as Witcher 3, Fallout 4, MGSV, etc. on High+ settings without the worry of bottlenecking.

    Sadly, you will need to upgrade your motherboard to one that has the AM3+ chipset, your curent mobo only supports the AMD 970 chip set which is not compatible with the 8350, the GPU however is compatible.
