The page you linked us shows this,
Processor upgrade information tab
Socket type: 775
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
•Core 2 Duo E7xxx (Wolfdale-M)
•Core 2 Duo E4x00 (Conroe)
•Pentium E2xxx series (Conroe)
•Celeron Dual Core E1xx0 series (Conroe)
•Celeron 4xx series (Conroe)

I think you'll be just fine there, remember to update your bios before instaling the new chip though

Manufacturers websites have the uptodate bios file

theres an instruction guide, second tab

if you have Cpu-z (or if not Download it) the motherboard tab will tell you your current bios version, if the one I linked is a higher number (I.e. newer) then proceed, if its the same or lower, don't bother
