You have nothing to gain w/ the old Core 2 duos. My recomendation: Athlon x3 450 @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Studies show that only about 3 cores are being used most of the time, and for that speed you cant beat the price. Dont go for the phenom CPU's, there's not a big enough performance jump for the money. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources "1st generation core2 duo " Vs .
