    Yes.

    Are you sure you only have an Intel Core Duo processor?
    Model iMac9,1 should have come with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
    (The 3.06GHz processor was an option for the 24" iMac.)

    I have an older 24" iMac model iMac6,2 with Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Absolutely no problem running Snow Leopard OS 10.6.8.
