If you have an integrated video card on your mobo can you buy a seperate video card and install it in the PCI slot and use that instead of the integrated one and is a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Duel-core 6000+ a good procosser for games?
sry about all the question but i have another one if you have a duel core procesor its pretty much like having 2 proc. so if i had a 3.0 duel- proc. it would be a 6.0ghz procesor right or am i wrong im not sure

It is very common for a system to have both intergrated and dicrete graphics. It is very important that the drivers are deleted for the intergrated graphics before installing the drivers for the card. Most cards these days are PCI-Ex16 and not standard PCI.

The AMD X2 6000+ is one of the best CPUs in the AMD line and will play games well if it has the right hardware to go with it.

Dual core isn't like having two CPUs. Atleast not in the sense that you are thinking. Typically a dual core CPU will perform about 30% better than a single core clocked at the same speed.

No, it does not. Your CPU is not the only factor when it comes to playing games. Have a look at the sytem requirements on a new game and you should see what I mean.
