Also will this make my system less able to run more graphic heavy games?

hmm im searching for it right now, check out www.amd.com under their X2 processors, maybe they have the technical info on there...
but im sure there is someone on here that can explain it to you, that has actually done it.

as far as gaming, it would probably not change, due to the fact that most games dont even use the dual core support, when you play a game with two cores it really only uses one. but in the future of dual core, games will start taking advantage of this.

I don't have a dual core but i think you do CTRL+ALT+DEL then in the processes you right click and choose the affinity for whichever program.
