    Processor Question

    Hi, i am getting a new computer soon and I was wondering, should I get an AMD Athlon FX-57 single core processor or should I get one of those new dual core processors? I don't think many games are currenty supported by dual core but I know they will be in the future. I want to play games like counter-strike and also newer games. What do you think I should do?

    My first sig!! ^^
    PM me if you add me

    Get an amd dual-core. My work bought me a PC with one and it runs much better (faster and smoother) than my personal single-core PC.

    Anything runs on a dual-core. Windows XP and Vista spreads the load automatically. There is nothing that the games have to do.

    I have read a lot of articles saying most games arent supported by dual core technology because it is too advanced or something

    Got a source for that so called information?

    If the software hasn't been utilised for dual core proccesors, then it won't run as fast as it CAN, but will still run fine.

    It'll run..

    I'd go with a dual core.. AMD X2, go online to your motherboard manufacturers website and check to see which CPUs it'll support first though.

    We've purchased about 600 AMD Athlon X2 4400+'s for the people I support at work, they run great.

    if you have a duel core and your game doesnt support it, it just means it will only use 1 core instead of both
