Cpu compatibility

Well my pc had a rather unfortunate incident recently while moving and as far as I could tell nothing was salvageable and I don't have the money at the moment to go for a completely new build.

For now I'm using an old hp box that I had laying around that has a AMD Phenom 9150e 1.8ghz and a MCP61PM-HM Nettle3 mobo. I'd really like to upgrade the cpu without having to upgrade the mobo aswell as I don't plan on using this machine for very long. I looked around for some AM2 cpus for as far as I know this mobo doesn't support AM3 and I found this, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6074851&csid=ITD&body=MAIN

I need to know if this cpu is going to be compatible or not and if not any recommendations that are

    Well you're stuck. You might want to think about a tracking down a cheap AMD X3 435 + Mobo combo... which you should be able to find at about the same price.
