Yes, the processor should work with that board.
Are your old harddrive, and DVD drive PATA, or SATA.
That mobo only has one PATA connection.
You would have to run the Harddrive as Master, and the DVD drive a Slave, on the same cable.
Because harddrives are so inexpensive these days, I'd opt for a new SATA drive, which would also be faster than the PATA drive.
Also, depending on the age of your old drive, it might be nearing the end of it's life.
On average, a harddrive can be expected to last 5 yrs., so that might be something else to consider.
