I am not a pro with AMD processors, but I do not that this is an actually pretty out of date motherboard, so you should buy a newer motherboard if you have the money to if you do not have the cpu yet.

It supports up to the Phenom II x4 965 as well as up to the x6 1090T,

Motherboards - M3A78-CM - ASUS

About the only thing you might have to do is update the bios the the latest version if you don't have it.
