Yeah I agree with ya My original stance on this thread tho was that the 790 Gx is a more future proof board and the only reason I said the quad was a better Idea was because it was only like 8 bucks more... But your right there really is no reason to make this thread even longer she has settled her problem... If she is happy we are happy ... Enjoy your new purchase OP...

Joga I love you man....

I've expressed my opinions and showed my suggestions. I really couldn't give a damn anymore.

I'm going to be like a politician and add some few points before the end...

From the quick glance I took over the thread...seemed to me like the quad everybody was referring to is the Phenom Agena 9600. Although it may be just a little more expensive the clock is almost 1000MHz slower than the 6400X2. She will not...and I emphasize WILL NOT use the extra 2 cores anytime soon. Most everyday apps still run on 1 thread...and she doesn't do video/sound editing nor is a hard-core gamer to use 4 anytime soon. Yes, the Phenom could last her longer...but the 6400X2 will last her long enough that when she has to upgrade she can get something much better for essentially the same price as the Phenom now. Does that make any sense or am I just rumbling on?

The single core loads are still distributed between the four cores.

Only if they were written to perform like that...which in my experiences aren't many.

I meant, depending on which OS you're using, it puts different single core programs on different cores. I don't know if you understood me correctly or not, but they're always distributed pretty evenly for me.

Ah...I thought you were talking about one single-thread program distributing it over 4 cores. What you said may be true. I don't know...I still run XP.

I'm on windows 7 now, and was running Vista. It's good if you run a lot of programs or 3+ threaded programs.
