    DDR = Double Data Rate.
    FSB clock = 333, Ram clock runs at Double = 666Mhz.
    It isn't 333Mhz per stick.

    Dual Channel increases the memory bandwidth, which alleviates the issue of bottlenecking between processor speed/bus width and memory controller/memory speed.

    Looking at the site you linked, all that means is that are different revisions of the same processor and there might be different bios required for different ones, or just no compatibility. If you expand the row of information by clicking on the [+] on the far left you'll see:
     Spec# 	 Processor Frequency 	 Intel HD Graphics 	 Cache 	  Bus Speed 	 Min. BIOS Version 	 Compatible Board Revision 
     SL9ZF 	 2.66 GHz	         No	                 4 MB	  1066 MHz	 0010	                 All
     SL9S7 	 2.66 GHz	         No	                 4 MB	  1066 MHz	 0010	                 All
    So if you have BIOS 0010 or newer you should have no compatibility issues with using that processor.

    oh k Arris I see what you mean than ok I will do that once I have the cash to do this upgrade. I was wondering is there a difference between Spec# SL9ZF or SL9S7 regarding The Intel Core 2 Duo CPU?

    Google :)

    CPU World : SL9ZF (Intel Core 2 Duo E6700)
    Looks like SL9ZF is the later version. Not much of a difference.

    Dude needs a new CPU Athlon X3 equivalent or higher, paired with a supporting motherboard, and faster memory, (at the very least), plain and simple. And Vsync doesnt make frames your graphics card can't already produce, otherwise Red Dragon and Graphzilla would be out of business. Go look how an Athlon II performs with current gen hardware and games... yea it's bad, so yours my friend is below that... way below.

    just to add to my PC Specs I did change my RAM from 2GB Kingston DDR2 667MHZ to Lexar DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHZ Dual Channel & my pc read the RAM as 667MHZ because of my motherboard can handle 667MHZ in Dual Channel.
