Please contact system vendor for more information on specific products or systems. Please work with your appropriate Intel representative to obtain a formal price quotation. What this means is the Core 2 Duo will consume significantly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects. And after you put it in, you think some other component is the issue that you are having? That way you can make sure the new ram functions okay. The smaller the overlap between the yellow and green bars, the better the value for money. In this case, however, the difference is enough that it possibly indicates the superiority of the Core 2 Quad.

Am I correct in this assumption? See your Intel representative for details.
Max Turbo Frequency refers to the maximum single-core processor frequency that can be achieved with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology. Functionality, performance, and other benefits of this feature may vary depending on system configuration. The revision of my motherboard is 1. The problem now is that the system hangs after booting up to the desktop screen and sometimes it will hang when it is booting up.

It enables an environment where applications can run within their own space, protected from all other software on the system. If you can set the ram timings manually in the bios, the ram should function fine. More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. But yes, for best use new ram is the way to go.
