Default Intel MOBO compat w/ Precott

I'm leaning toward this board, but am planning on a Precott 2.8 800 FSB. Doesn't specifically say P4 Prescott (some boards do). Anyone know if these would be compatible?

Why don't U consider AMD?
Prescott is not recommended untill it gets a new socket(915).

The main reason is that I'm after a very solid stable system. I'm not planning on overclocking and will not be playing games. The system will mostly be used for graphic design (photoshop, illustrator, etc), and from what I've read, the Precott's are very good at multitasking, and the only real drawback is the heat issue. I've looked at the AMD-64 3000+, but the P4's (precott or northwood) have near equal performance for my needs, at a better value. Do you have any experience with my specific performance needs?

Thanks for the prompt reply.
