    Does anybody know when games will start being made to take advantage of dual-core processors? I've read on an AMD forum that right now the AMD Athlon 64 FX57 is the best for gaming. But as soon as games start taking advantage of dual-cores, the AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors will be the best for gaming. So I'm just curious if anyone knows about when that will happen?

    Thanks much

    When they become common enough that most people have them. Game makers want to capture as many gamers as possible, if only a few have dual core processors, then they won't make money by making games for them.

    But I don't know all that much about processors, I'm not a hardware expert.
