Even better question...Who needs 1001 horsepower and the ability to go 255mph. As long as it is made, someone will want it.

the class old question of why make a car that can go speeds of 200mph when the national speed limit is 70mph

but all i mean is there are few programs the use all 4 cores, even heavy multitasking might use the hole quad but to have 8 cores

there isn't going to be a game / program that uses that for quite a bit

but saying that it would kind of be cool with 2 quad extreme chips and quad gtx or ultra :laughing:

Not really... Crysis would lap up the extra processing power with open arms.
