    I have just been looking on the following web site to see if my PC can run certain games.

    In the info I am given after it tests my PC, it says I have the following;

    You Have: 2 processors running - Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz
    You Have: 2.99 GHz Performance Rated at 4.49 GHz

    How do I tell if I have 2 processors running, and can I make full use of them if I have two?

  2. There is a good program called cpuz. It gives you all sorts of information.

    The link is here

  3. You probably have a single Pentium 4 CPU with hyperthreading. Hyperthreading can squeeze a little more performance out of the CPU (~10 percent) compared to a P4 at the same clock speed without hyperthreading. Hyperthreading allows the CPU to run two threads at the same time. But it is nowhere near as efficient as having a two CPUs or a dual core CPU.

  4. The Cpu is mostly not the thing holding you back.. its more likely to be your Gfx card. If you play games, like crysis, then your money is best spent on high horsepower gfx. A Pentium 4 3.0ghz is pretty reasonable for 90% of games available today.. remember a lot of them are designed to run on consoles with their pathetic CPU's and graphics.

    You can also check 'Task Manager>Performance'. It shows how may cores or CPUs you have.
