Yes. Make sure your BIOS is up to date and that motherboard will support the Phenom II series. Be advised that your Phenom II will not perform as well as it will on a new motherboard, as the interface between the system bus and processor is more limited on the AM2+ socket than the AM3 sockets the Phenom IIs and Athlon IIs are designed for.

Be sure to choose a Phenom II on that list and not the one you were considering, though. Wattage issues, likely.

The Phenom II 965 works alright with the M2N32 boards, but you have to use a workaround it to run at the proper frequency. Take a look at this thread if you have not done so before:

@Jeff78: The M2N32 boards can Phenom IIs @ 4GHz without issues.
