    The PSU should be fine.
    CPU support list show you need BIOS F6h for this CPU.

    If you are going to upgrade everything maybe a buldozer ready motherboard instead (AM3+)?
    How cheap is the 790FX?

    Much ess but there are no 890X AM3+ yet.
    890FXA is 165 USD after mail in rebate on newegg but not revision 3.1 which is AM3+.

    But question is what are the OP needs. No point spending money on features that will never be used.
