Default New build compatibility

Hi Guys,

Need a little advice!

An upgrade for my Computer is well overdue and really need to look into getting something sorted for work. I don't play too many games but would still like it to be able to if I do want to.

I built my PC back in 09 and this are my current specs:

M4A79XTD EVO
AMD A3 720 Black Edition
TX 650 (v1)
4GB HyperX 1600
-My GPU died so have only been using some useless 30 card

My main question is will my motherboard and PSU cope with an upgrade?

The CPU I am looking at is the AMD FX-8320 I've found a decent price of just over 100 and the memory Crucial 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz Ballistix. I would get a new graphics card but not found anything specific yet.

So all together it would cost be around 250 for the 3 components but if I need a new Motherboard and PSU its going to set me back closer to 400. So I just need a bit of advice before moving forward.

Update: Sorry bit lazy from me, I don't think it's compatible. AM3 and AM3+.

Ok question still stands on the PSU, but new question. Can I get a better value Intel CPU for 100? Looking through some review and benchmarks, it looks the best value CPU.

PassMark - CPU Performance Comparison[]=2283&cmp[]=343&cmp[]=1782
