Re: Amd Vs Intel
For now, I'd go with the dual core. Games tend to do better on a Duo than a Quad. Games won't be optimized for the C2Q series for a while longer. FarCry 2 takes advantage of the 4 cores, but it doesn't evenly use them all. I believe GTA IV will be the first game to use all 4 cores evenly. For everyday gaming, movies and useage, I'd go with the dual core. That way, since they are still both the same socket, you could upgrade a few years down the line from now with no problem.
