    uuh.... you have any idea how old this is? And it's already been proven to be pretty much a myth. That option is for number of PROCESSORS, not the number of CORES.

    edit: the same thing was on XP too.

    lol.. so, I'm a little behind the tiems (good tiems!) never noticed it before.. :p

    I suppose I can test it on an XP box with dual processors to see if it makes any difference with 2 physical procs..

    windows automatically uses them all. That option was for limiting how many it used for testing purposes :)
