    slimserver won't in itself but, with multiple cores or CPUs, MySQL can
    run on different processor.

    True for the core slimserver itself, but there are other processes running (the scanner, mysql, codecs for transcoding, etc) and with multiple cores those won't be competing for the same resources as slimserver itself.

    With versions 6.5 onwards the MySql Server is probably running under a seperate thread.

    Also the Core Duo processors have actually had some processor tweaks which will make a difference. Many of the processor instructions take less machine cycles which probably has a lot to do with why this processor runs faster than an equivalent Pentium.

    FYI, Fry's Electronics has great deals on the C2D's. I got an E6300 Conroe bare chip and motherboard for $149, which is $30 less than the oem chip even at newegg.

    My custom build has an Intel E6700 OC'd to 3.33ghz and it's amazing.
