4000+ man, for gaming. I think we need a sticky on this or something. A Dual Core will only make your PC CAPABLE of more, it won't improve its performance. Games are single-threaded and will remain like that for a while now, maybe even for a year. So having a Dual Core doesn't help you in games. To get a Dual Core that would perform like a 4000+ in games, you'd need to buy the X2 4800+, which is like $999 or something. So just stick with he 4000+. Also, try overclocking the Dual Core to like 2.8Ghz or 3.0Ghz. Not even in your dreams, unless you have a vaporcooling kit.

4000+ will go to 3.0GHz with good air cooling, and the 7800GT might be able to be overclocked to 7800GTX if you're lucky. Some of them unlock to 7800GTX, some don't. Its still worth the price though.
