If you decide to get that motherboard you'll have to get a new cpu at least, your current cpu isn't supported on the new board. You can look at the list of supported cpus here:

Guessing your memory is DDR2, you'd be upgrading that as well.
The PSU might be useable depending on the graphics card you use. For an oem unit its actually half-way decent.
