I am looking to buy a new CPU and buy FPSC X10 what is like the best one that I could buy for under $400.

Search for computers.

I think it would be pretty hard to find a 400 one though.


I got mine for over 600 so.


Cheers,

No I am just looking for a processor I saw a quad-core on new egg for like $300. I also might add a physics card but I dont know how much that will do for me.

there is no point in a physics card only a small amount of games use them and if you get a good gpu its will make up for it

The most important thing is to find one that is dual core, everything else is less important and will depend greatly upon which motherboard you have.

Purchasing a CPU is one of those domino moments, a seemingly cheap CPU can suddenly cost much more because you need new MB, memory etc. Just make sure you know what you have and what you CAN use before you buy anything.

i upgraded a 2.0ghz single core to a 2.4ghz quad core, apparently fpsc uses all 4 so thats about 9.6ghz, and that cpu was about £150 ($300)

Thats your best bet, search for intel core 2 quad, Q6600

or alternitivly look for the dual core 3.0ghz which is around £1/$2 cheaper but will run old applications (that dont use quad cores) quickly.
