No its not compatible, the board only supports Athlon X2's up to 65W, that Phenom X4 is a 125W processor so your board will not run it, and even if it did you would burn out the voltage regulation circuitry on the board quickly

Wait so what is my best choice if I want to upgrade to a newer processor?

Get a new board, which will require new ram, which basically just means a new build. If you can save up 400-500 you can get a decent lower end build that will greatly outperform your current set up.
