You goona need a dual core if u video edit all the time. Also that video editing software needs to use the dual core. Do audio work like recording 13 track at the same time and that program uses dual core. if you dont do this dual core are a waste of money.
You said it. U'll like it in the future!!!!! well why waste 100 when u get the same performance for a single core now?
when in the future? how many games use dual core right now that would benefits from this?(tell me plz im eager to know).
Technology goes down in price. Im petty sure that even in 2 years u wont see a massivee numbers of game using dual core. Also in thoses 2 years you dual core will go down in price.
Buying for the Future is Stupid. Stop your "Future's proof" BS!
Well, I am not going to be spending to much time responding to this, I very rarely like to reply to people who fail to use a spellchecker and refuse to type two additional characters in the word "you". However, I will make an exception in your case.
Computing is NOT all about gaming it is about stability most of the time, and the best cure to laggy games is stability. I moved to my X2 3800+ from my old rig which is not worth mentioning so of course there was alot of gain, however, my friend build his new system at the same time and he did not get the X2. Whenever he defrags his hard drive or wants to do ANYTHING other than gaming he either chooses the game or the additional program (and I do mean anything, he wanted to do some photoshop while waiting for UT 2k4 to load and it taxed his system quite a bit).
I can encode DVD's, download programs, run Fireworks/Photoshop, and play Battlefield 2 while getting 60-70 FPS in Battlefield 2 while on high settings and AAx2.
So, are you REALLY going to continue to display this "BS" attitude that a dual-core, for $180 is not going to help?
Really buddy, it is you who should stop your "BS".
Oh and in relation to the multiple threaded games, I can guarentee that almost every developer is going to be taking their games to multi-thread simply due to the fact that it allows them to be run machines who are not "cutting edge" due to the fact with a 2 GHz processor you technically will get 4 GHz. Also you can run far more physics in your games if there are two cores taking care of all of that trouble. And if the developers were not moving to multi-thread, why in the sam hill would they come out with Quad-Cores?
And I do realize you will skip over almost all of my post and go to the bottom therefore I will not respond to you beyond this post.
While you are here discussing I will be encoding DVD's, downloading some movies, and watching Ultraviolet while Nortan does a quick scan through my computer.
Have a nice day.
