A core 2 duo is a dual core processor i do believe, so basically your going from a dual core 1.8Ghz cpu, to a 2.5Ghz cpu, is that what your asking?


core 2 duo is a line of dual core processors. depending what kind of dual core he installed, then yes... a 2.5 could be better than your core 2 duo @ 1.8 just make sure it wasn't a pentium D chip that he put in. the easiest way to see what CPU you have is, go to the start menu, and right click on 'computer'. click on properties.
a window will open showing you the processor you're running, the memory, the exact operating system you have, etc...


The 2.5 ghz dual core is a better chip than the 1.8 ghz Core 2. It is a better design with faster circuitry, not even considering the higher clock speed ghz speed.
