Default Cheapest CPU compatible with this MOBO?

Hey,

I have a bunch of computer parts laying around, and I have enough to build another computer, except for the processor. I have the following Motherboard, and I want to know what the cheapest CPU that I can buy for it?

p5nsli ASUS

I am looking at a 2.6ghz Intel XEON processor for like $25 on ebay, would this be compatible?
Is it basically any processor below Intel Core 2 Duo that is socket 775?
