Will this CPU work in my Mobo?

This is the CPU I want to buy. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727

This is the motherboard I have and a list of the supported CPUs. http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A78LTM/#CPUS

I see it supports the x4 965 series but the model number on the Asus website is different from the model number on newegg. I'm a bit worried. Sorry for the noob question. Looking to order this tonight, so any information would be lovely.

Thanks in advance.

  5. Just to explain the difference - The model # on Asus is for just the cpu, the model# on newegg is for the cpu, fan, heatsink package.
