I'm using a dual core Athlon 64 4400+ and it's just great for 3D work.
I also heard that Intel core duo2 is even better so you can safely choose it.

I have an Athlon 64 6000 + and then I was not enough. To select a computer for 3D graphics, the question is only in money, the more expensive the better.

for the 3rd time this site has blocked my message because I mentioned a website. fr### grrrr...

get at least 4 GB of Ram, which means you have to use 64-bit Windows Vista or 64-bit Windows 7 in order to recognize that much memory. 32-bit Windows XP cannot recognize a full 4 GB of memory.

Get a Dual core processor 3.0Ghz+ as opposed to a slower speed quad core. It is like winning a race with 2 Fast cars as opposed to 4 slower cars.

Then buy a video card that has at least 512MB of memory.

Good luck.
