I wouldn't use that CPU at it's 89W TDP. I don't think you can even run it with the stock 65W power supply, and with a more powerful one (90W), it'll overheat in no time flat. Get a 45W rated CPU instead, it can be any that fits socket AM2/AM2+. Even then, I found out, I had to undervolt the CPU to keep temps in check. But, if done right, this upgrade is priceless when compared to the stock 2650e CPU.
