Core Duo here, that may be why.
The quick answer: No idea. The complex solution: Buy a Mac Pro with low end processors, buy your own Quad Cores and then install those. Mac Pros make it really hard to get to the processors though and it WOULD be expensive...
I don't see it... I really don't know what exactly you're talking about though. OSX does use "faint translucent horizontal lines" in many places though...
It sounds like a driver issue. Search for drivers directly from Intel for the video and from... Sigmatel? for the audio. It wouldn't hurt to have more up-to-date drivers anyway. What kind of video are you trying to watch anyway? If it isn't drivers, it might be bad codecs or just a bad video player. Try VLC.

The genius "didn't see" it even though I clearly pointed it out to him, and even went so far as to blame in on pressure on the screen or the filters used on the screen. I...
Man I remember KidPix, I wish there was something like it out there too. The dynamite... classic!
No problems from my PNY 1 gig... Got it on sale for $80 at Best Buy.
