I have a Gateway GT3020m computer with Intel D945GCZ (Cortez) Motherboard.

The intel website updated on March 30, 2007 reads this motherboard only support Intel Pentium D Processor, Intel Pentium 4 Processor, Intel Celeron D Processor.

I want to know if this motherboard support the Intel Dual Core processor E2140, E2160, E2180.

Thanks to anyone

You'd only be able to get an older chipset to support newer processors with a BIOS update... which the big companies seldom do unless there is a serious problem, and then only if enough customers get pissy about it (if then). You'll need a newer motherboard... If you're in the market I'd suggest the Gigabyte P35-DS3L as a good entry level motherboard.
