buy a new board. G31 or G41 based mobos are good and cheap, try getting a gigabyte one. i just built a system with one and it seems like a quality board.

You can install it just fine, but like you said "its not supported" so it will not run. That chipset cant run the 45nm CPUs.

For the price of the 7500 you coulda got a e5200 and a motherboard.

No, it will not work.

Exchange it for an E5300 and Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L.
The total cost for the CPU and Motherboard is only $2.99 more than the E7500 alone and, most importantly, they are compatible with each other.
The E5300 can easily and safely be overclocked to match and exceed the E7500's stock speeds.
