Compatible CPU?

Hey guys i have the following question:

I would like to get the E5700 as a upgrade to my current P4 processor but im not sure if it will work or even fit for that matter, im willing to go down a few brackets if needed. the E5700 is the fastest cpu with a FSB 800 so thats why chose it + the store is close to home.

If you need some more info just ask

I would appreciate some help :)

(i know i should upgrade my whole pc but i dont play that many games, even my P4 with my current 8800GT(bottleneck :P) still runs the games i play with decent fps except for a few games hence i only wanna upgrade my cpu)
