    Most newer games can work the best cards.

    Even if the game is not multi-threaded, you can still take advantage of the
    dual cores by setting the affinity of the cpus.

    One core for the normal processes, one for the game ftw.

    - 1.7 Who is your publisher?
    "We are co-publishing the game with Sony Online Entertainment."




    This right here is reason enough to ignore this title....don't believe me, ask anyone who played SW:G.

    I have a program for doing this automatically, btw. It's much improved from its first version. Even if you don't have dual cores, it's damn convenient to be able to put Automatic Updates at the lowest priority setting, for example, so it only runs when your CPU has free time available.

    Pretty much any game will benefit from dual-core, simply because there is an extra CPU available for the computer to get shit done besides just running the game. That reduces lag no matter how good the rest of your computer is.

    I assume that it can remember individual settings for different programs?

    That could be handy for a lot of things.

    One of the things that I do is put burning programs on high priority.

    I had someone hosting it for me at one point, but that kinda went away. I need to find a new host.

    For the record, it very rarely improves the performance of individual programs, but instead reduces performance-robbing conflicts.

    Of course. That was the reason I wrote the program. I couldn't find anything comparable anywhere.
