    ok I am newer to understanding the inner workings of a computer. I am a rather handy and maybe a little too ambitious.

    I have Macbook Aluminum unibody late 2008 with 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo & 4GHz RAM

    From what i can gather, apple solders the processor to the logic board, ya?
    I use a second display at work and I noticed that the graphics have been acting up on the second display ie:app windows distorting and colors getting out of whack when dragging from the screen on my mb to the aux screen. The only way I can fix this is to reboot. This has been consistent daily for about 2 weeks.

    I was told the logic board my be going. If this be true and I need to replace the logic board, I was going to upgrade to the 2.4GHz myself.

    My question is: does this 2.4GHz logic board (Apple Part #: 661-4819) come with an attached processor, ready to install? or do I need to get that separate? if so, which one do I get?

    The logic board comes complete with the CPU. The CPU is soldered on.

    any mac is not worth upgrading the processor/logic board, you're better off selling what you have and then buying what you want, paying $600 for a processor upgrade isn't worth it...
