rofl this dude who is a+ certified told me that ... guess t doesnt take much nowadays to get ur hands on these certifications
Well not to diss A+ certifications, but in all honesty it doesn't take much to get your hands on one. Atleast not down here. $150 I believe it is for the test and you got your hands on one and it doesn't take a genius to get it. I'm not starting anything silver, but I'm simply saying (although I'll admit to you it was an old article so things could have easily changed since then) It showed basically no increase in performance when upping the core, it was only until the upped the memory that you began to see framerate increase and overall performance increase. Also it has been in my experience you will definitely get the core raised more than you can raise the memory by.
BTW: My friend is A+ Certified...the school said they had good job placement afterwards...know what happened? They put you on a Dell assembly line so they can say all their computers are built by A+ Certified specialists.......so unless you have A+ with MCSE and a plethera of other certificates, the A+ by itself doesn't mean much these days
