if you press ctrl+shift+esc and goto performance, the number of cpu graphs will tell you how many cores you have.

And if you have 8+ i would love to know what chip your running :P

i know.... I envy those who have 4 cores and.... i dont ever think that there is an octocore CPU?

Most 8plus core pcs are server PCs. i think.

Quad core here: Intel Q6600 - overclocked by a bit.

BTW, There are 6 core CPUs, Intel's Xeon 7400 series and AMD's Opteron "Istanbul". Although a few of Sun's SPARC CPUs and PlayStation 3's cell processor has 8 cores. (Yes, I am a computer geek.)

Can argue about all of the 8 PS3 cores being general-purpose...

It can be wrong, well, if you have hyperthreading on.

I have an AMD Quad Core Processor running at 3.0 GHz it runs really well. But before this i had a single core. And my computer SUCKED. but now i can run everything at max settings. I have 8 GB of DDR2 RAM. My video card is Nvideia GTX 260. 1 Trig of memory (or 1000GB)

64bit OS, surely? Otherwise half of that RAM goes to waste...

well actually 8 Gb of ram is not so much better compared to 32 bits on 4Gb ram since your drivers have to run parallel which you need even more ram to benefit from64 bit

It would be possible if you were running a supercomputer with a 64 bit OS. IBM's Roadrunner has about 103 TB of RAM, but then again it's got 6,480 AMD Opteron dual core CPUs and 12,960 IBM PowerXCell 8i CPUs. Making for a ridiculous total of 116,640 useful cores.

BTW, They are running Linux. :P

2's awesome, it's all I ever need to use, anything more is just ego trip and a waste of power as well as money not so well spent unless you're qualified for an asylum for insane multitasking ability.

Multithread games that are CPU intense. Quad core is recommended.
In Source games with Multithread coding I find that I get twice the FPS of a dual core.

Quad core does have its uses; I do a lot of rendering for instance so it's not always just an ego trip.

8-Core i7 940.

Though if you have an i7 like me you don't actually have 8 cores. You have 4 cores with hyperthreading enabled which virtualizes 4 more cores. Technically you don't have 8 cores but from a programming standpoint yeah, you do because you can run threads on them just like your other cores. Just thought I'd mention that.

Why did the guy above me list his graphics cards? The poll says CPU not GPU idiot.

2. It is enough right now. Most games uses 2 nowadays. They are rarely some games with more usage.

Don't talk about things you don't know. That's not how threading works. If a game launches _X_ threads it uses _X_ cores, they don't just program it to work on 2 cores. The game almost NEVER controls which cores the threads go onto. So your saying that almost all games only use 2 threads? gtfomyinternets
