Nah, still not worth the cost to performance boost ratio for me. Plus all the time and energy... if I could get a couple of matching quad core 3.0s at a reasonable price (which is next to impossible) that would be my next upgrade on this machine.
Long story short, they're ditching legacy graphics in favour of OpenCL. The old Intel GMA graphics which were horrible to begin with (What was Steve Jobs thinking?) and don't support OpenCL. Even my 2006.5 iMac's ATI Radeon Mobility X1600 doesn't support OpenCL.
Also, the EFI needs to be 64 bit. My 2006.5 iMac has a 64 bit processor but a 32 bit EFI.
Say goodbye to a whole bunch of decent 32 bit programs then. Again.

The one thing I was looking forward to on ML was the ability to Airplay anything to ATV. And I read somewhere that even though some 64-bit Macs would run ML, it's not all of them that would be able to Airplay. Has anyone else heard this and do you know anything about it?
I have a 2010 MBPro and I am sure it can run ML, but I am worried it may be one where AirPlay is not supported. If that is the case, then I shall not be upgrading.
You should upgrade regardless - it's even more pointless not to, especially if you're running Lion today.
Requires a second-generation Apple TV or later. Supports the following Mac models:
