Default Needing help with new pc build.

Hi im in the process of rebuilding my computer and needed some help with some things.
Here is my specs.
Asus M3N-HT Deluxe Mobo /w an AMD Phenom X3 8650 Processor 2.3ghz.
Kingston HyperX DDR2 2Gb 2x1 GB 800Mhz 555 15
ASUS EN9800GT UL/HTDP/512M Geforce 9800 GT 512MB
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX
ASUS Lion Square 92mm Vapo Bearing CPU Cooler
Thermaltake Saprano VB1000SNS Mid tower case.

I had a few questions. if anyone would be kind enough to answer.

Will my Asus lion square heatsink and fan fit in my current tower?
Will the Corsair psu unit be enough for current system?
I'm thinking about going to 1066 mhz Ram, will i have any issues with this?

Hope to hear from someone thanks!

The Ram you have there is ok and your PSU will run that setup just fine.

The HSF will easily fit inside a mid tower case.

Yes, more than enough in fact. Overkill even.

Because of the Phenom's improved IMC, I think it would be worth it to go with 1066 RAM.

Thanks for the replies now i can rest a little more easier knowing this info thanks.
One more thing if i may ask, ive heard that the M3N-HT motherboard has had a problem with its bios, something about it needs to be upgraded if your using a phenom 9850, i was wondering if my Phenom X3 8650 would need this bios upgrade for this mobo or not?
