Need to upgrade CPU and GPU

I was wondering if I could up my GPU to a Raedon 7870 and my CPU to a Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core

I'm not so great with hardware...

My current specs are:

Operating System
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
AMD Athlon 7850 Black Edition 26 C
Kuma 65nm Technology
4.00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 401MHz (6-6-6-18)
ASUSTeK Computer INC. M2N68-AM Plus (AM2) 44 C
E320VP (1366x768@60Hz)
1024MB ATI Radeon HD 4650 (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1) (XFX Pine Group)
Hard Drives
149GB Seagate ST316081 2AS SCSI Disk Device (SATA) 29 C
Optical Drives
High Definition Audio Device

It looks like your motherboard only supports AM2+ CPUs so the one you linked wouldn't fit. To answer regarding the GPU we'd need to know the spec of your PSU.
