The thing i still dont get but seems just as reasonable to say otherwise, is how can you say one core, out of the multi-core proc still fair as a playable option of choice, even though in terms of additional cores basically says you get the same amount of processing additional for each one for the numbers of cores in one proc, but stil able to play one processor in the cpu core. Without saying that just one one proc thats one core cant run at higher speeds of the same software? The grpahic cards are obvious differences, given most run i think from the 400mhz plus range and on in terms of core processing and memory speeds. Let alone to say a difference in DXs in reasonable enough to say one runs better then the other for the specs. Given Crysis has some demanding interests to run even low to play. At a point says no. Given though one core within a multi-proc though can run the higher-end cards on itself. With one DX in mind or more.
