I would change the motherboard and keep the CPU until you can afford another one.
But to answer your question I didn't find any good info about that motherboard on the internet but what I did find said it doesn't support Quad processors

Agreed i found no info saying it supported quad cores...

Unfortunately, except for G41 and an occasional P40 series board, the supply of LGA775 motherboards has dried up unless you want to risk a used board.

Better to limp along with your present system and upgrade everything when you can, I think.

For gaming purposes, get a better graphics card.
