that quad core is cool, but out of my price range. A core 2 duo seems good enough for me, if I could afford it I'd definitely get the quad because it's cool

Core 2 Duo was only ever designed as a stop gap - a quick way for Intel to get back a bit of the market until the Quad core processors came out.

LOL I just bought the new Core 2 Duo. Oh well... Six months - 2 years I'll wait for it to go down to about the same price I bought my Core 2 Duo.

Not really. Intel COULDN'T put 4 cores of NetBurst on one package. The heat output would be ridiculous. So they had to design Core 2 Duo in order to be able to fit 4 cores on one package.

Yeah, Core Duo, and Core 2 Duo should hold you and then some. Quad core is just for enthuasists, theres no need for it right now.

Yea, with 2 Cores runing 2 cores in each core. Can put out alot of heat. Whats your guess on a stock heatsink like 60c?

So far the game called Awake Somthing, can use the Quad Intel core and the game looks real, I mean real like REAL!

The video said, One core gets data ready for the GPU, and the other does the Phyics for the game. If you ask me that is smart idea for the game

Alan Wake you mean? With stock cooler, i bet the quad cores will hit 70*C load on stock cooler. With Tuniq Tower 120, overclocked it goes pretty high.

yea, man. Am I right, Alan Wake runs 1 dual core with getting data ready for GPU, and the other dual core for Phyics?
