It should work but if you have an OEM board it had might be a small gamble.

 

Why the upgrade? If anything it seems like a bit of a side-grade. Had might even be a downgrade if you board can overclock.

 

Edit: Looks like the e5200 has a higher base-clock too so it should be better at stock as well. Only difference seems to be virtualization.

The E5200 uses a smaller process node (45 nm) so in return it should run cooler and use less power. Its known to be very good at overclocking too.

If you still haven't bought it, buy an E5300 or better. Make sure it is the R0 revision, which is the revision that enabled virtualization on the Pentium Dual Core line, the E5300 is the only one to have had two revisions, all other CPUs better than the E5300 are R0 revision, hence they all have virtualization enabled. You can go all the way to an E5800 running at 3.2 Ghz, they all give you the benefit of 45nm tech.
