Here is your motherboard:

Check the CPU support list,it supports Phenom II CPUs and it also tells you which BIOS version you need.

As far as what chip you should buy, it depends on what you are going to use it for. The 550 would be a little faster in most games but the 620 would be faster when using applications that actually use all the cores. Both chips are good, but one may be a little stronger for what you are doing.
