With that chipset, your mobo is a socket 775, the CPU you're asking about is a newer ivy bridge which needs a socket 1155 (much newer) mobo. you could put a core 2 duo e4xxx series in there and be good to go.

With a 7770, i'd just leave your CPU as is, you'll end up with a decent entry level gaming rig. If you sprung for an i5 and then threw in a 7770, you'd not see tons better performance with a lower-end GPU.
