The answer is no. It's right there in the CPU support from your link:
"Designed for Intel® 90nm Prescott LGA775 processors with 800/533 MHz FSB"

My friend has a similar motherboard. It also only supports pentium 4 CPUs (prescott).

You will need a new motherboard also if you intend to upgrade. If you choose an AM2+ or a newer 775 motherboard, you can reuse your old RAM.
