Please help me pick my new cpu. - Page 3

*** is this "Duals are better than Quads at gaming" crap?

ok 45nm quads and Duals OC to around the same clocks. Most people settle for 4.0Ghz add or take 200 mhz. At the same clocks they will perform the same. They are both on the 45nm Core architecture. The only way a dual would beat the quad is in price/performance terms.

While I do agree duals are better than quads at gaming, I don't think a 2fps difference would make it better, especially since you're getting more out of a Quad than just 2fps less than a Dual.

Duals are only better than quads when clocked higher. At the same clocks they are exactly the same.

Get it right.
