No idea. I wouldn't be suprised if it was multithreaded. It would be a very big mistake especially because computer technology is starting to shift over to dual-core.

Crysis will support multicore setups.

Well, the predicted recommended system requirements for it include a dual core processor.

hey, rahx, how much are you looking to spend. From there it's a lot easier to give recommendations. "low price" is totally subjective to who's saying it. If you have a certain amount you're willing to spend on a whole new computer, or just a part, people can give you actual recommendations.

edit: I don't know if that makes sense, my head is having trouble working right now.
