U will need X64 to make windows use both the cores... but if u have a dual core supporting game you dont need x64 for it to run on both cores. X64 just makes the general running of windows use both cores.. windows 32bit only uses 1 core.
In reply to Tylers post.
There is no X2 4000+... It goes 3800,4200,4400,4600,4800. But there is an AMD 64 4000+.
I would get the 3800+ or 4400+. The 4200+ is just the 3800+ clocked 200mhz faster... and the 4800+ is just the 4400+ clocked 200mhz faster.
But the diff between the 3800/4200/4600 and the 4400/4800 is the 4400 and 4800 have 2x1Mb Cache while the 3800/4200/4600 only have 2x512kb.
I just had a quick look to make sure i was correct and i spotted the 4600.. i did'nt even know it existed.
