Hello there!

I have one question: As I often heard how much two processors should be preferred over a single one, I now want to know in which way this affects gaming. Is it also better to have a dp or is the advantage so little, so that a less expensive single proc is enough?

Thanks in advance.

i don t think there will be a big speed bump, as most games, like 95 % or so, are just addressing the packages to one cpu.
I don t know if this exists, but perhaps there is a tool which will make it handled by the os like one faster cpu, by the so that you ll get however a small benefit.

Yeah.

Only a handfull of games take advantage of two procs. But, I must admit WHEN the do, they really rock if ya have a DP Mac.
Especially Nascar 2002....
