eh, a dual core would be a huge benefit. I have a 3500 venice and before I get vista I will get a c2d. But it would be ok, you will definatley notice a performance decrease coming from xp.


XP Pro | Vista Home Premium | Linux Ubuntu 7.10
s939 X2 3800 Toledo @ 2.6ghz | evga 7900gs | 320gig + 80gig wd | 1gb Ram | Abit KN8 SLI
3.1ghz achieved. :cool:

Vista is supposed to take pretty good advantage of dual core technology. Wait until you want to upgrade to vista to get a new proc of course but yeah I'd recommend a dual core for it. There will be a lot of good performance benefits from Vista plus stuff like new games and video encoding, etc.
