Well to make things a bit easier, the single core 3800+, won't outperform a dual core, significantly.

The Supreme Commander game, does takes some advantage of multi-core, so you'll get a little boost with the X2.

my friend is buying from cyberpower pc (i've tried and tried to discourage him.. w/e) apparently the 3800+ is the same price as the X2 3600+ brisbane, he was crazy enough to buy a single core, but i reconvinced by telling him a dual-core was future intensive, right now a single-core maybe better... but a dual is more future-intensive
