Dual Core CPU Question
My computer has a crap cpu, an Intel Pentium 4. It's dual core, and it lags when I play newer games like Starcraft 2 and Crysis 2 demo. I recently looked into an Alienware m11x gaming laptop, and saw that it also contained a dual core processor, but it could run new games fine. Is the problem with the amount of cores it has, or just my dual core sucks, and a newer dual core would serve me just fine? Thanks!
