c2d=core 2 duo by intel. anything by intel with a E#### where as #### is a number is there core 2 line. e4200 is the where the duel cores start at i think though. please correct me if i'm wrong
oh i c, ure were talkin bout a CPU, yea, i plan on getting the quad core q6600 on the price drop date

Its raod 1+0 actually, same thing. uses 4 hdd and it basically is a raid 1 and a riad 0 so you get a raid 0 with slightly less performance but if you loose a hdd you can install a new one and fix your riad.

No not exactly, I dont know everything aboput all the raids. Look it up on google or go the HDD section someone can give you a better explanation. Raid 10 I dont think had fault tolerances liek riad 5 but it doesnt use as much resources.

I would only use raid 5 if you had a dedicated raid controller.

Some 64 bit enabled games will see increased performance - Far Cry is one example.

Like I siad you may as well if your getting 4g of ram since a 32 bit os wont see more then 3.5 or something like that. For everyday use you wont notice a difference but with a few apps you may see a difference.

The game has to be coded to take advantage of x64. In the case of Far Cry, this simply required a patch, though I've found that installing later x86 patches after the x64 one would make the game crash. I tend to have two directories for far cry, one x64 for single player and one x86 for multiplayer.

Seeing as you need to have the latest version of Far Cry and the x64 patch isn't the latest version, then playing over the internet isn't possible with x64 as far as I know, though you wont have any problems playing over a LAN with all computers useing the last x64 patch.
