Very surprising number of dual-core systems still out there, I guess maybe the laptops are skewing that.
Shouldn't be; I still have a high-end Core 2 DUO E8400 system at home I built with a nVidia GTX 580, 16GB of RAM, and a 10,000 RPM WD VelociRaptor. Since it's a 3GHz processor, it's been more than fast enough to play even recent titles. Of course, that's likely because every PC game is secretly a console game in disguise
But seriously, I haven't felt the need to upgrade the base system.
