Pentium 4 915 express chipset

  1. i have a dell DIM4700 with a pentium 4 915 express chipset with 1 gig of memory and i have two questions. First of all I want to use this for home recording and the software I've looked at says I need a multi core processor. Is this processor a multi core? Secondly is it a matter of a new chipset if it isn't or am I looking at a new computer? Thanks in advance everyone. Joe

    Pentium 4 is single-core.
    The 915 chipset you have won't support Core 2 Duo, so your best bet is likely to be a new computer. If your software is 64-bit compatible then it would be worthwhile basing your system build on a x64 capable CPU and using 4Gb RAM. A quad-core is made for this these kinds of applications ( video capture, editing, transcoding, sound editing, composing etc.)
