I have this CPU : Intel Pentium 4 P4 SL6WK 3.0Ghz 512KB Cache 800Mhz FSB ...

  1. DDR means double data rate. Your memory is running at 800Mhz. CPU-Z always reports that way. My DDR3 1600 shows as 800. Everything is fine.
  2. take the 400x2=800 and try this http://www.hwinfo.com/

    Not enough to matter. You would need aftermarket cooling as well.

    You have a CPU that has been obsolete since 2005 and there is not really any way to make it better, even having 2 of them would not help. It was really not even good when it was new.

    The only way to make your system faster is to upgrade the whole thing. There are no good CPUs that fit a socket 478 board.

    Core2Duo is obsolete and not even made anymore and your Pentium 4 3.0Ghz is about as fast as a 1.5Ghz Core2Duo.
