They should work just fine.

Yes the CPU will fit into the Motherboard and will work, though you wont be using the mobos full potential as its AM3+ while the CPU is AM3. But this wont degrade performance or anything, so its all good.

According to the ASUS website:
The PII 965 is NOT listed.

You should ALWAYS check the motherboard manufacturer's CPU Support List. JFReggie is correct in that it is not listed.
