Hey everyone, I am hoping to build a gaming rig soon and i am wondering:
With quad cores, can all 4 cores concentrate most of their processing power on one application. eg a game. or does 1 core concentrate on the game, and the others concentrate on any other programs that are running?
I'm not sure if it would be better to get a quad core at 2.66Ghz or a dual core at 3.16Ghz. I'm not interested in overclocking as the wikipedia page makes it seem very dodgy, and i wouldn't really know how to. (Although I'm sure this site would help).
Also from what i've seen, motherboards compatible with dual core CPUs only have 2 slots for RAM, and i was hoping to get 6 gig of RAM (unless 3gig sticks are available, i havn't seen any.)
Any responses much appreciated
