Yes it's a good match

ASUS P5Q-E LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Supported CPU
CPU Socket Type LGA 775
CPU Type Core 2 Quad / Core 2 Extreme / Core 2 Duo
FSB 1600/1333MHz

PS:If your in a low budget & not going to use this system for gaming
it's okay
Finally I always Recommend Corsair when it come to choosing the PSU

I would suggest you replace your PSU like above suggested a Corsair or imo Antec. I know thermaltake is kinda cheap but you really want to have a very reliable PSU, one bit of a problem and might short circuit ur whole board...
