No it doesn't support Pentium Dual Core processor/s. It support Intel Pentium D, Intel Pentium 4 and Intel Celeron D processors. You can check out the supported processor lists HERE.
Note: Don't confuse with Pentium D and Pentium Dual, they are different.
Hope this helps.

Can I upgrade to a Intel Pentium D 945 3.40ghz processor. Intel (Augsburg) 915G Motherboard

No, the Intel (Ausberg) 915G motherboard will not support dual core processors.

The Intel (Ausberg) 915G motherboard uses an Intel 915G motherboard chipset,

Supports only Single Core processors.

It isn't until the Intel 945G motherboard chipset, that Dual Core processors are supported.

The Intel Celeron D is a Single Core processor.
The Intel Pentium D is a Dual Core processor,

Intel Celeron D,

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families. The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core. It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers). Unlike the Pentium D, the Celeron D is not a dual core processor."

Intel Pentium D,

Don't 'shoot the messenger'. I just state the facts.

This mother board support dual core proccessor

This motherboard is built with the Intel 845 chipset and is socket 478. This particular motherboard will not support a dual core processor of any kind. This board will only support a standard socket 478 Pentium 4 processor at best. I do not know of any that will support anything better than a Pentium 4 2.8GHz processor with a 400MHz F.S.B.

Need a prossesor for motherboard

You can also use any other intel 775 socket processor as well. The dual cores are at the top of the list for performance that are compatible with that board, but if you're looking for a cheaper solution, I have that board with a 3GHz pentium 4 and it runs great. Here's a list of all the processors you can use.
Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 2.80 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel 'Core' Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Upgrade to dual core, Intel E2180

Okay. You would need to change your motherboard. The socket 478 does not support dual core processors.

Here is a motherboard and processor combination at a relatively good price.

For some reason I must have gotten an older version of the board in the title when I looked it up but, nonetheless, it won't support the E2180.

Intel processor E2200 LGA775 not working

This motherboard supports Intel single core Pentium 4/ Celeron processors, according to the asus website.
So your dual core is not supported.
You need to get a intel pentium 4 or celeron processor
