Re: Dual Core or Quad core?
Depends on what you do with the machine. If you are like me and always have a ton of programs open, a quad core is great. If all you do is play a game and dont have much else going on in the background a dual core should be fine. But just know that as time goes on, more and more games are going to support multi core cpus. So if you plan to keep it a while, the q6600 will benefit you far more down the line than the e8400.
Nothing to see here.
