I have a Dell Dimension (4200, I think) w/a single processor (I believe). I'm told to use the Pinnacle 9.0 video editing software (pro-sumer) effectively, you need a dual processor. Can I actually just ADD another processor, or do I have to pull the old one and completely replace it? Any suggestions on what to get?
THANKS!

Hi,

I know nothing about that software or why you would need a dual processor for it but this I can tell you, you can't add a second processor to that dell or any dell I know of. You would have to build a complete new system.
