Please advise in upgrading CPU

Hi !
I'm new here and would appreciate any help I can get in upgrading my CPU. I have a ThinkCentre M75e 5044 A12, currently running AMD Sempon 145. I was wondering whether my upgrade options are limited by my M/B VRM and if so, what is mine. Will I be able to use a 125 W TDP processor ? Or only one that is rated 95 W TDP ? I do understand that I'll also have to upgrade my PSU as well. Please advise me on the best possible CPU upgrade path that I can take. I'm considering the FX-4100 which will physically fit the AM3 socket,  but I'm unsure whether the BIOS would recognise it.

M/B: Lenovo Tilapia CRB
Chipset : AMD 780G Rev: 00

Southbridge: AMD SB700 Rev: 00
PSU: 280W (I believe)
ThinkCentre M75e 5044 A12

There is a newer BIOS release, 9IKT15A, which processors would this support ?
