need a little help here please guys .. been stuck with single core goodness for far to long and just upgraded to a nice dual core system.

i remember reading various times that you can assign a single core to do certain tasks as sometimes that programme runs better.

how do you do that ?

ive reinstalled the old game enemy territory and want to make sure one core is doing the job

any help would be appreciated

Right click on the process in Task Manager, and click 'Set Affinity' :)

You shouldn't really need to set it though as Windows is usually very good at allocating cores.

unless you have a specific problem running a certain game/app then just let windows do it's thing. it's far better at managing resources than you are. ;)

lol ok fair enough... got to say , nice performance boost from my old system ( in sig ) to a dual core 545 with 4 gig of ram. and being able to finally get a blu ray player is a nice little side by-product.. although it is a media centre build lol

im not sure task manager remembers processor affinity after a reboot, so you'd end up altering it every time you turned on your pc. Probably best just to let windows deal with it.
