Intel's core 2 duos.. or more specifcally Conroe is much MUCH better than anything AMD can give you right now.

All the Vista editions support only one or two physical processors, however, none are limited to the number of processor cores they will support. So yes, Vista will be able to handle quad core easily.

Intel Core 2 Duo is best at this point.

On a side note, AMDís new socket AM3 CPUs such as the "Deerhound", will be backwards compatible with existing socket AM2 motherboards so the upgrade path will be much smoother than originally anticipated.

Intelís quad core is suppose to operate at around 2.67GHz

It's highly unlikely that quad core will be, and vista.. well.. don't hold your breathe. That probably has about another 8 months before it's even remotely worth shipping out.

Socket AM3
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_AM3

"AMD has confirmed that AM3 processors will work in AM2 motherboards. However, AM2 processors will not be compatible with AM3 motherboards. This is because AM2 chips lack the proper memory controller for DDR3 memory (since AMD chips have the memory controller directly on the processor itself, instead of on the Northbridge), and AM3 processors will have a memory controller that supports both DDR2 and DDR3 (though it lacks the capability of running both at the same time). This has the benefit that anyone who buys a Socket AM2 motherboard will be able to freely upgrade to any AM3 processor in the future, ensuring that AM2 will have a long future and not be obsoleted too soon."

I just pasted all that there from the link above.^^^^
