Assuming you are running WIndows XP on the motherboard in question, you can download from Microsoft their Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor tool:

Most likely problems are the audio and LAN won't work.

Windows 7 will install on your mainboard, but in order to use onboard devices:

 

- you must install WindowsXP drivers for 845G integrated graphics, and even after this you will not have Aero effects.

- you must get audio driver from Windows Update or from Realtek site

- you must install Vista drivers for 82562ET network adapter

 

AGP video boards also will unlikely work stable in Windows 7.

 

Also, Windows 7 have not good support for NetBurst-gen CPUs, so be ready for up to minute 'lock-ups' when using certain OS features.
