    Also, FantasyStrike, you could go to Vitality Computers, on Independence Road, right off Sardis Road North. Some of the stuff is a little dated, but they have an alright selection(and better stuff than Best Buy) and decent prices. A good place to go if you are just starting out.

    Well while you are at around $230, you could just get a cheapass ASROCK DUAL VSTA 775 (DDR, DDR2, AGP and PCI-E) and an E4300. x_x

    But performance wise, even a single core AMD 3200+ would be faster than that POS Pentium D 920.

    @Jakko Vitality Computers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL I Know that place. xD

    @Jyuu The Whole reason I wanted to get a Dual Core is because PS2 Emulators need dual core and I want fast computer.

    No they don't. They are all single-threaded. Wherever you read that is fake.

    And also a good single core (like a 3700+) is faster than the Pentium D 920 because it's not 1+1=2 with a dual core processor. Especially not something written by amateur people.
    Heck, even Valve's Gabe Newell and Epic's Tim Sweeney say that it is really hard to code in a multithreaded language. Even John Carmack dislikes multithreading.

    Yeah, now compare a Pentium D 965 Extreme Edition to a SINGLE CORE AMD Athlon 3700+.
    The AMD would easily win.

    Okay so look at the performance delivered by the 3800+ and the Intel Pentium EE 840 (dual-core at 3.2GHz, better than the 920 at 2.8GHz you intended to get).

    Even when multithreading was enabled, the SINGLE CORE 3800+ was as fast as the DUAL CORE Pentium D 840 EE.
    And mind you, this is a game developed by John Carmack himself, the only man I would be gay for.
