It is compatible with the socket LGA775, so I do not see a problem.

What CPU is it?

Looks right to me. It's compatible with LGA 775 Dual Core, Socket LGA 775 CPUs.

What do you mean by it's too small?

It will work, in one of the reviews the reviewer said they have it on a Q6600 which is a socket 775 processor, and all 775 slots are the same size.

you might have to switch out the brackets for it to fit.

Is this a Gateway PC, or custom? Because those mounting holes definatley aren't standard for socket 775. A lot of times pre-built machines will have proprietary parts...
