Hi there!

Last week I buyed a new CPU, Motherboard and RAM; farewell, dear AMD Athlon 3700+, welcome Intel Core2Quad Q6600!

First I wanted to buy the E6750, but then I choosed the Q6600 - Premiere and After Effects make good profit of four cores.

Now I am wondering: does FXhome support Dual oder even QuadCore CPUs? I think this would be very nice =)

Regards, Tuffy

Sorry, it's hard for me to understand correctly...

There I can only read about DualCores, but not QuadCores...

So far we've not been able to test on any quad-core/quad-processor systems but we expect the results on these systems to be even more stunning and well ahead of the stats listed above!

Ah, thank you.
Maybe you should buy some QuadCores - they're quiet cheap at the moment; I payed 239€ for my Q6600.

Thank you for the support, Tarn - agein wink
