It would work, but the optimal CPU for this card would be at least a recent Core i3, as these new CPUs have integrated PCIe bus, while your CPU has the obsolete FSB architecture, which needs an interface chip (the northbridge) between the CPU and the GPU.

You can upgrade your GPU now, but before you do so check the power supply's wattage and the number of PCIe power connectors it has.
