Is these compatible? cpu and motherboard question

I found this dx79sr motherboard online cuz of this site

http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel/DX79SR.html http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel/DX79SR.html

and heres the exact model im trying to purchase on amazon

http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Motherboard-2011-Socket-DDR3/dp/B00858CYCQ Amazon.com: Intel Motherboard for LGA 2011 Socket DDR3 2400 Intel - LGA 1155 BOXDX79SR: Computers & Accessories

As far as i see, these two are compatible right?

but what confuses me is that if i go to sites like pcpartpicker.com and add these together without the compatibility filter on, it indicates that these two are NOT compatible and only 39# k models are compatible?

personally i would like to believe that pcpartpicker.com has an error? I really dont get it right now T-T

can someone clarify this for me?

Thanks in advance!
