HI!

I want to know If I have dual Core processor.
I went to Run and typed in "dxdiag". I looked at Processor and this is what it said:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00 GHz (2 CPUs)

SO do I have Dual Core processor or not. I also went to Start>My Computer>Properties and there it doesn't say anything about Dual Core.
I have Windows XP Professional

More about : dual core processor

Best solution

Easy bro. Just download this software. Btw Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU is only 1 cores if i'm not mistaken. By chance if your scoket is 775 then you are capable to change to dual core processor. Your doubt will be cleared. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Hi! SO I went to Google and typed my PC model and saw that my Processor has Hyper Thread so can you somehow explain me what it is. ( I know I can just googeld it, but don't you think this is more interesting?)

Not good but its too old school.. Gonna spent a lot if u wanna upgrade it. So better buckle up some money and do a new system. I'm sure you will be satisfy with you. Plus, seriously i'm teeling you the each buck u use to spent your old rig better to save it up for future rig. :D . Btw to know the type of socket you have download the cpu id as i gave the link above. If its socket 775 you can upgrade to dual core and if its socket 478 u cant do anything.

If you need a cheaper solution, I recommend getting a low end laptop. Laptops out now can be purchased for 250-300 bucks, and come with decent performance now. FAR superior to what you have now.

IF you want to build a new computer, you will need to get an entirely new computer, new everything most likely. Expect to pay 450-500$ for bare bones system.

Hey people one more thing! Can I play AC: Revelations with this PC. I mean I played Skyrim and Borderlands 2 just fine with it without the new memory upgrade. So this is not the headline topic more of a side quest. I went to the Can I run it it said only that I need a better Processor.
