Default need help with my build

iam currently building a new pc, and i have got all my parts together and installed the winxp os as well,
but when i log into windows, i found out during some programs opened and doing other things like watching a video while a video is encoded at the same time, it should not lag at all, since is a dual core processor.

so the question here is, what else do i need to do after putting all parts together ?
mabe is not recongize as dual core. how do i know if my pc is running at dual core?

my rig:
Intel Core2 Duo E6300, Gigabyte P965 S3, 2GB Corsair XMS2,
Geforce 7600 GT, 320GB HDD

Hey, I am going to buy the same mobo as you, but check this out:

That motherboard is very specific on what type of memory it supports. Tell me if I am wrong about this.

He meant the brands of memory, like Corsair.
