i under stand the effect of 1 of 4 could be 100% but the over all usage could be lower if the other 3 core are not doing much .rendering a low load % over all.
in the next up date multi core is being introduced.
if i want more cpu i have options without swapping boards. there are 6, 8, and 16 core options i belive also available on this board . so i dont think i will do a mobo swap just yet, and i am running w7 pro 64 . if that makes any difference.
id like to focus vid card . then later if need be do my other hard ware. ill et ya know what card i get here soon.
