Why not go with Quad Core instead? Whether it be Phenom 9750 or Q9550.
A Quad Core is still a Quad Core.
Dual cores aren't obselete yet... quad core still hasn't taken over, nor is it close to being the new standard, and it might actually be a while before that happens.
Yes, a quad core might last longer, but dual cores are still fine for months/years to come. And if you're only spending 100 bucks on a great one, rather than 200-300 dollars for a decent quad core before that technology is even standard, the dual core might be more worth it.
