This is the compatibility chart for your mother board. (rev.1.0)

If you have a different rev go here and choose the correct one.

Look at the lower left corner of the motherboard for the revision number. I use cpu-z to check the bios. Google how to find it.  Here's a pic. (Work pc).

You must have a Rev 3 board. It has the FD bios. Check the lower left of the motherboard to be sure. It will be printed on the board.
 You might have to remove the side cover of the pc.

tfisher  thanks, your dead right its revision 3 on the board in the corner. so I can use any of the bios downloads that are for the revision board 3 from the downloads and as long as the cpu  is support by one of the eeg etc codes im good? cheers.

I would update to the bios needed to support the cpu before installing the new one. (FEg)

But perhaps some one with more experience might offer some insight..
