No, that motherboard is 915P socket, and the E8400 is Socket LGA775, you will need a new motherboard to use that CPU.

Looking for sound drivers for the p5gd1-vm motherboard
The first link is for Asus. I entered your info so all you have to do is click search and enter your operating system. I don't see an app for Win 7 if that's what your looking for. Keep in mind that before you download new software, you have to unistall any prior software.

Is there a graphics card available which is compatible with the old Asus P5GD1-FM motherboard. The Radeon X700 in place has died. The Radeon HD5450 I bought to replace it does not work at all, so back with...

Any old standard PCI graphics card will work with this board as long as you stay within the power levels your PSU can put out. You can not put a PCI-E or PCI-Express card on this board because you lack the necessary slots. Make sure you double check the interface before purchasing another graphics card.

Connecting my PSU to my Motherboard

The bare essentials to start a computer are PSU, Motherboard, CPU, RAM and Video.

Its possible the PSU arrived DOA. Though I've only had 2 DOA PSU's in the 15 years I've been building custom computers.

Hope this helps.
