That's a very good question. The site certainly is confusing, and it makes no sense to bundle the dual core FX processors with the single core 64 ones rather than the dual core X2 ones. If you are feeling brave, I'd suggest trying the X2 ones as they are the ones that solve the dual core timing issues. If not (and I wouldn't blame you) then I'd suggest you contact AMD support and ask them first.

I don't feel sooo brave, the machine cost me a lot of money (lol) sorry (lol). I will contact the AMD support and let you know any answer. Thanks again.

"Too many users are having pbs with the latest driver.So to avoid any unuseful inconvenience,it has to be repeated that the latest driver ONLY adds support to the AM2 cpu generation (Hardware detection).There are NO performance improvements over the previous ones.This was made very specific by AMD a few months ago.If you do NOT have an AM2 cpu,stick to the 1.2.2.2 that work just fine."

This is from AMD forums related to the last drivers. Yesterday night I install the latest (1.3.2) and start to have ctd's that didn' have before and with other games.

CBJ: In acordance with AMD forum the drivers from FX and dual core are the same, even that fx are 1.3.2 and dual core are 1.3.2.16. So their is no difference. Also I try both and the machine function ok, less ctd,s.

I make the affinity througt the task manager but their are programs that does not let me make affinity. Is that normal?

It can happen, any specifics as to what processes these are?

Thanks, but I think this 14 year old thread can die once again. Language setting is not really even on-topic for the thread and this is not even the correct game forum for discussing X3AP.
