Some mobos have their BIOS optimized to support AM3+ processors, but only some of them, you should check very well the specifications of your mobo and what version of BIOS it have so you can check if it supports AM3+

Get a better cpu, that would be best, of course i've saw a few people oc our cpu to 4.0 ghz and it runs fine.
this GPU wouldn't be bottlenecked too bad anyway, even with stock speed, but bottlenecking to any extent isn't something thats good.

It won't - you'll need a mobo with an AM3+ socket, like these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007625%20600138080&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&Order=RATING&PageSize=20

Yes you should, your CPU is bottlenecking your GPU so any OC would be welcome.
