The quad core will perform equally, if not slower to the dual core. Either route is going to last you a very long time before you have to upgrade.

No, I don't, it's the same CPU. He was asking which CPU, not saying he had to buy the one from TigerDirect.


And I was tired and misread the speeds of each, go with the Dual Core.

It's stock clocked at 0.5GHz higher than the Quad.

I would go with the Quad, Its cheaper and will probably serve you better in the end ..

As Rohan stated, he won't be using it for anything that will utilize 4 cores.

If I hadn't misread and thought the QC option had a higher clock, I would've never recommended it.

The DC being at 0.5 GHz higher (stock) than the QC will give him more of an increase in performance.

Go with the Phenom. Although it is a dual core, there is a chance that you will be able to unlock the other two cores if you have a motherboard with SB710/SB750 southbridge (Which that mobo does). It will also perform better in single threaded apps.

If you spent another $0.01, then the Quad would be $0.01 cheaper, INCLUDING shipping.
