    Hi all, been wondering if hyper threading could benefit my gameplay. let me explain, I play Dark Age of Camelot; its an MOG.
    Now its comon knowledge that your proc uses 100% when you play a game.... The thing is I often times play 2 accounts of DAoC at one time, on the same PC. now, this works fine... expcept that it doesnt run as good as it would on 2 PC's. I cant really justify building a new rig just for a game, So i was wondering if Hyperthreading, being that it splits itslef in 2 or some ****, would enable me to run 2 games smoothly. would each game have its on proc, so to speak? If so that would be just what i'm looking for.
    can someone please knowledge me on the subject?
    Main RiG:
    CPU: Athlon 64 3200+@2.17

    I don't think it would work like that.

    Each one would be trying to occupy all of the CPU's resources.

    A single application needs to be multi-threaded to take advantage of it.
