lol doesnt matter on how many cores


for example, a amd phenom 9950 processor has 4 cores yet a core two duo at 3.0 GHz owns the amd at benchmarks

actually, the more cores you have, the faster encoding/decoding you can do.
But in gaming, its true, a higher clocked Dual Core is better than an lower clocked Quad Core.
I think Macs are overpriced IMO, and they are limited to programs and games compared to PC's.
why do you want the Mac Pro BTW?

I'd keep your current system but upgrade to a Q6600...
