    No. Thats an AM2 motherboard (AMD). You want to find a socket 775 motherboard that supports core2duo CPU's.

      ECS G33T-M2 LGA 775 Intel G33 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard. this mother board would be perfect for you if your still going with that same processor. heck it could even handle a quadcore.. i would put the page but i dont know how to put links in replys. its also at neweggs.

          If I'm not mistaken, your motherboard would be fine for running a high end AMD CPU (see Gigabyte's website; you might have to flash the bios depending on the board revision). I'm running the nforce 4 chipset and have run my cpu with an nforce 5 series. I couldn't tell much difference. Rather than spending $150 on a new mobo and cpu, if you put that $150 towards an AMD X2 to use with your current mobo, you should get much, much better performance than the other upgrade path you have selected. I'd go with the AMD 5600+ for $140.
