Does it matter if my current cpu is a single core cpu if I want to put in a dual core in my computer or does it depend on the mobo? If so, my mobo d945gtp so could someone please tell me what dual core's are compatible with my cpu.

The reason I ask this my system tends to hang when I try to use convertx and when I try to download things or when I am scanning my computer for malware and and open up a couple of web sites. Does this sound like a single core CPU issue or would an increase of RAN from 512MB to 2GB solve my issue better? I appreciate your input.

thx

Pentium D is dual-core, Celeron D and Pentium are not.

Note the disclaimer at bottom of link re unsupported processors.

Personally, I think that a problem with a program is probably a RAM issue, not a reason to change CPUs.

An upgrade from a single core, to a dual-core Pentium D is very minimal. The dual-core Pentium-D's aren't that great. It would be easier, and cheaper to just upgrade your ram, which would also give you the bigger performance increase.
