Answer:
In general, AM3 processors are backwards compatible with AM2/AM2+ sockets, although you'll miss out on some of the processor's features without the more modern socket.

Hi Douglas. The short answer is yes, it will work on your motherboard.
An answer with more reasoning is that this CPU's socket is known as "AM3" and your motherboard's socket is "AM3+" which is backwards compatible with "AM3". Any time you are looking for compatability between a motherboard and CPU, you only need to look at the socket on both (usually found in the specification) and see if they match. In some cases like "AM3+" they have backwards compatability, this is also usually documented - as seen on the gigabyte website for your motherboard.
As mentioned in the previous answer this is an old discontinued CPU and it would be cheaper to look towards something currently in production for the "AM3+" socket. An example would be the FX8350 which can be found on Amazon. http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-FX8350-Edition-Processor-4-2GHz/dp/B009O7YUF6 see less
