Re: AMD 6 core or 4 core?
amds new hexa cores are cheap, but kind of under whelming in performance. But the price is what makes them shine. They are slower at gaming, and pretty much everything else, against the intel chips, but they are a fair bit cheaper then most. If you have the capability of running one go for it. I would get one of them over the 955.
