Morning all. Tomorrow, I should be ordering a X2 4600+. Currently have a A64 4000+ San Diego, 2 Gig Ram, 7900Gt video card on a A8N-SLI motherboard. Is this a step up in the right direction? The CPU's are both 2.4 Ghz. (All three?)
P.S. I have the AMD and Microsoft drivers/patches downloaded and waiting. Where in Windows would I go to check that I have dual core capabilities?
P.P.S. I was just looking at the Microsoft Hotfix. Its for processors that support power management features. Does that mean "Cool & Quiet?" If I don't use C & Q, do I need this hot fit?
