That's an Intel platform so you can count the AMD option(s) out of it.. As for the CPU support list for the motherboard, take a look at the provided link -

You won't need any extra components if you decide to go for either of the E8400 or the Q9400.. Pricing wise, going for the Q9400 makes more sense IMO.. Check up on google for current pricing..

Go for the Q9400 and another 2GB of Ram. That would be giving that computer a new lease on life.
