    Generally yes but you should find out what chipset the motherboard has to insure compatibility with a new processor like fsb and core.

    You can try using cpu-z and click on the motherboard tab to see or use everest to find out the chipset.

    One you find out you can google it or post it here and see what the highest fsb and if it supports prescotts or northwoods, then buy accordingly.
