It's alright to ask....that's what we're here for.

To use quad cores efficiently, is up to the programmers.

Not all programs will benefit from quad cores. But games in the future will soon be.

I'm just saying that a quad core for $270, is a great deal and hard to pass up.

You don't need a special motherboard for the quad core processor. You just need one, that is compatible and supports a quad core.
