Specs: Windows XP, 2.802 GHz / 3007 MB
I have a Shuttle XPC with a shuttle fd30v10 motherboard. The chipset says i945g/gz. Now, I want to upgrade to a Core 2 Duo e7400 over the processor I currently have in it (Pentium D 3.4 GHz).

Will this motherboard/chipset support this processor? I tried looking up on the internet and I Can't find my answer.

Also the Pentium D has 4 MB Cache and the e7400 only has 3 MB Cache, does that make the Pentium D Faster?

"I have a Shuttle XPC with a shuttle fd30v10 motherboard"

Are you sure about that model number? Could it be FD31V10?

"Will this motherboard/chipset support this processor?"

No, the i945g/gz chipset doesn't support the Core 2 Duo.

"the Pentium D has 4 MB Cache and the e7400 only has 3 MB Cache, does that make the Pentium D Faster?"

Have a look at this comparison between a Pentium D 950 @ 3.4GHz/4MB L2 vs a Core 2 Duo E6300 @ 1.86GHz/2MB cache. The E6300 wins in almost every single category.

If a C2D E6300 @ 1.86GHz beats a P-D 950 @ 3.4GHz, it should stand to reason that a C2D E7400 at 2.8GHz would obliterate it! Too bad your board doesn't support it.

The 945G won't run anything newer than the Pentium D, but the 945GZ does have limited Core 2 support. Which one do you have?

The GZ only supports 800MHz FSB Core 2 Duos (e4x00 chips) and Pentium Dual-Cores (e2xx0). The e7400 won't work.

Socket 939|Dual-Core Opteron 185 @ 3.2GHz|A8N32-SLI Deluxe|4GB CL2 PC3200|SLI 8800GTS|1TB|PCIe X-Fi Titanium Pro|Win7 Ultimate x64

It shows an E4600, not an E7400. Read response #3 again.
