If you have the revision 1.3 of that motherboard then this is the list of supported CPU you can use. Look Here.

Also make sure you have the required BIOS version.

Good Luck

You can basically only find the Q9400 on Ebay and yes, the processor can handle it considering the GT210 is the lowest graphics card in the 200 series.
