Default Cpu And Mobo

ok i have a 2.7ghz intel celeron processor, i dont feel like upgrading the mobo since i just bought it, the motherboard is "AOpen AX4SPB-UN" i was wondering if with that motherboard i could put in this processor, the "INTEL - Pentium-4 3.2eGHZ, 1024K "Prescott" 800FSB S478" if i could that would be amazing because im looking into playing games now and i dont think my cpu is gunna run the games like it should. I'm buying a radeon 9800 128mb pro AIW and i want that card to not be bottle-necked by my cpu.

Looking at playing games at almost full everything if not full everything...games i wanna play are:
FAR CRY
HALF LIFE 2
DOOM 3
and a few others..cant think of them right now...any help would be appreciated

do you think this cpu is good enough? oo yea im also using 512mb ram
