sammo450: I know multicore is good for gaming,
sammo450: OK thanks for that. I am on a budget really so AMD is the one for me. I've got an Abit AX78 motherboard, and thought quad would be really good. Do you know if games can treat two of the four cores as a dual core processor and ignore the other two?
sammo450: Hm quad could have 2 cores dedicated 2 gaming, while the other 2 could be doing background tasks such as antivirus, music, and recording video/audio.
