Two Processors???

I have recently purchased a dell dimension 8400.

When I look in the system, device manager and select processor, it shows that I have two processors. Is this accurate?

It also appears that I have two graphics card!!!!

What is going on?

Intel Pentium 4 processor with Hyper-Threading (HT) technology make a proccesor behaviour as two. Soit appears as two processors even physically you only see one.

Your graphics probably has two connection heads (one for vga and oe for DVI), so it appears to the windows as two graphics card.

you just got what you paid for
