I have an oppourtunity to upgrade my CPU from Intel T2400 Core Duo to a Core 2 Duo T7600 for a great price. Done the compatability comparisions on Intel site chipset and mobo seem to work and the gains are significant in overall cpu speed and cache. A few things I am unsure of Max TDP 31W to 34W, Voltage range low end, processing die size, and most of all 32 bit to 64 bit this is what I want but what changes if any should be made besides BIOS check and OS? It seem s to me that for the right price swap out is simple and a ram upgrade and new 64 bit OS and I am rolling on new rubber.

If your motherboard can support the CPU, it will work. Make sure the motherboard's BIOS will support the new CPU before you buy. You also cannot upgrade to a 64-bit OS from 32-bit since it is a platform change. This requires a clean install, but if you're getting 4GB or more of RAM and don't mind backing everything up, it could be worthwhile.
