the intel core 2 quad is to intel core2duo chips yes but there so close and on the same chip that there basicly is no bodelnecking problem but
if your have to cpu on to diff slots
the bodel necking goes way up
this is offcourse if your using this as one pc like playing games ect...
but if your running a server is makes no difference becouse the data does not have to be split up like if you were playing a multicore application. a server would just put on job in each core
Wow way to go "bodelnecking"
Very few games use more than one core, and those that do will only use two. The difference between 2X Core 2 Duo's and 1X Core Quad will be extremely minimal.
EDIT: Ownage, XP will support multiple processors as my friend runs XP PRO on his Dual PIII rig
