A quad core cpu generates much more heat and will therefore not clock as high as an equivalent dual core. For gamers, a dual core clocked sky high is currently the best chip. Your statement about needing to upgrade when quad core becomes mainstream is sort of silly. By the time quad core is mainstream, all current cpus will be outdated and need to be replaced. Hardware is far ahead of software and its been that way for a long, long time. I've been waiting and waiting for the day that my single core couldn't run any of the current games that I play with high frame rates, but it STILL hasn't happened. With all of the above being said, explain to me again where the advantage is of buying a quad core today? I suggest buying a dual core and saving the rest until quad core is actually being used. By that time, the processor you'll purchase will lay waste to anything on the market.
Sorry I believe Maximum P.C.
1. They said Supreme commander actually does use all 4 cores
Wait ill the new games come out such as Alan wakes New game
They use Quad-cores and will be realesed pretty soon
It has been show that slower DUAL-core ckips bottleneck the 8800gts.
