Yes, it will support it, but you will need a firmware update. You can check the CPU support here:

Personally, I think you'd be better off with an nForce 2 based board like the A7N8X. Putting a CPU like that in a KT333 based board is like putting a V8 in a Honda Civic.

Why don't you get a Barton 2500+? It's cheaper and overclocks better.
