Can I swap out my Athlon 64 X2 5000 Brisbane 2.6GHz Socket AM2 65W for a Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Brisbane 3.1GHz Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core? I'm pretty sure the mobo will handle up to 89 watts, but I'm not sure if there would be bios issues?
Also my current RAM is 1.8v, if I install high performance RAM with a different voltage, will the mobo recognize it?

I wasn't really expecting much of a speed gain, I just happen to pick the CPU up at a going out of business sale for $45, not sure what to do with it...looks like eBay is a good option.
Thanks for the input!
