Re: Is it required to have quad core for new games now?
^unless u oc them. No it is not required, but their are some games that utilize 4 cores out, and that number is only going to grow, rapidly, and quite soon. Also, don't get a q6600 at the moment. There is a bad batch out right now, so either buy a older used on, a q6700 new,or a q9550 new.
