That mobo and CPU are incompatible, for that CPU you'll need a socket AM2 Motherboard, that one is socket 775.

If I wasn't on my way out I would help out more, but the guys here will hook you up with everything you need and all the answers to your questions.

You should go with the 8800GT 512MB, its the best bang for the buck if your going to be gaming and blows the 3850 away.

But that looks like it should work, that mobo got positive reviews.
