I have no experience with any of those as I still remain with my 3500+ but with no doubt in mind i say go dual core at this point. Dual core will outlive the FX-55 in usefulness. Now of the two dual core processors, i would take the 4400+ @ 2.2GHz because it can easily be overclocked the same as the 4600+ and it has 2x1MB of L2 cache. Looks better to me anyway.
