Hi, Im wondering if there will be a significant peformance drop between a single core Athlon 64 2.8ghz and the twin core version, .I wondered if a board that supports the single core AMD will allow me to upgrade to the twin core version?

"I wondered if a board ...."

Which board exactly?

"Im wondering if there will be a significant peformance drop between a single core Athlon 64 2.8ghz and the twin core version,"

What twin core version, exactly - what single core version exactly?

Normally a twin core processor will perform better than a single core, all other things being equal (which they usually aren't).

The CPU in question is an Athlon 64 le 1660 as used in a Mesh computer. I have another pc using the dual core 64 2.8ghz CPU and have been pleased with the performance. The single core version seems to be a good buy for use in a second pc for my wife although she does like online games such as Conan which recomends at least a 2.5ghz dual core CPU or a 3ghz pentium.

Well the CPU performance should be close to recommended - which probably means better than the minimum requirement.

What about the motherboard query?
