  1. Hello! I Just changed my Mobo some months ago, its the same one i had but this one has a pci-e port... Well i didnt installed it.. Someone helped me, Anyways i reinstalled everything after the mobo was installed. Now i open DXDIAG To check my configuration and now it sez that i have 2 Cpu's!
    I've ran some other programs such as Everest And a Active X Thing at Nzone.com to check system requirements and all of them keep saying that i have 2 cpu's ... I Dont know what happend, i just think that the cpu ram is a small square, did the one that installed the new mobo just placed the old cpu square thing in the new mobo?
    That means i have 2 cpus? Or my pc is screwed up? Hehe im pretty confused, hope i dont confuse u more guys.
    Thanks!

    Heres the Dxdiag Info...

    The reason for that is probably your cpu is a dual core, or as in wolfram`s post above lol.

    He has a P4, HT CPU :)

    Maybe your other mobo didn't support HT technology EsTeBaNo, or you had it disabled in BIOS ;)

    If I'm not mistaken, most Pentium D CPU's didn't have HT technology, because they have 2 real cores....

    Take a look at your DXdiag.txt file. You have a Pentium 4 (not D or dual core), probably Prescott core :)hotbounce ) HT CPU ;)

    I stand corrected. wolfram is correct, look at your system specs HERE.

    Oh Thats Cool! Thanks a lot!

    One Last question... In Your personal opinion.. Is this a good cpu or a normal one?

    What you have is a very decent CPU, not the best, nor the worst. Your processor is up-to-date and can run most applications with the proper components so don't worry, you have a good cpu. You also have the ability to upgrade to the newer processors due to your newer socket.

    Normal one. It is built on the old Netburst architecture, so it runs pretty warm. The new Intel Conroe's and most AMD 64's can beat it. But then what can I say, I'm using an AMD Duron 700!

    If your mobo supports dual core CPU's, you should be fine.

    Hyper Threading CPU's are pretty good, I have one you can turn HT on or off in the BIOS because somehow one time my system turned off the HT by itsself. But yeah its a good cpu deff not the best but not the worst . So its not a Core 2 duo but not the orginal Pentium lol.
