Yeah. You must see if its ''45nm CPU ready '' (thats from my asus spec) and pay attention on that . As u know they have ...45, 60, 95nm CPUs arch so be careful.
Edit: Bios support too.
Edit 2: As I see ur mb support dual core wolfdale CPUs such is core2duo e8400 which is based on 45nm arch so Im 99% shure of compatibility with ur board.
My opinion GO WITH XEON!!!!!
