Also, the way i use my machine, a quad at 3.6 is way better for me than a dual at 4ghz. I always have tons of stuff open, firefox, whatever game i'm playing(with affinity set to all 4 cores), trillian, sometimes listening to streaming music, ventrilo. Ya, my quad gets utilized.
Yeah, I do a lot of stuff at the same time. But I only have a dual right now anyway, and it is hopefully going to be sold soon. So yeah..
