Can I use a i5 processor for Gigabyte G31 mother board.

Was planning to upgrade my processor to the i series i5 processor but not sure if it works on Gigabyte G31 motherboard. While buying the seller had mentioned that the board supports a lot of processor including multicore processors etc.

Any idea if it supports the new generation i5 processor?

No it won't work with your existing motherboard.Your motherboard supports processors which have Socket 775,while the core i5 variants do not have socket 775,but these core i series of processors have socket series 115x,so it won't work for that motherboard.
