Maybe you should try reading ey?
Maybe You should do the reading instead or better yet get some experience with said products before spewing your crap..Just a thought.
Yes in Some cases a "True" Quad does have an advantage in "Certain" games or situations... NO one is arguing that fact.
The OP is asking if an i3 is enough for todays games and YES it is especially when overclocked to 4.0ghz+.
So what if the i3 is a Dual core.. it does have hyper-threading which does get used in "games" that can use it.
You DO NOT need a True Quad or Six Core for Todays Games Period and is only justified and or needed based on wants and needs.
This whole thread is ABOUT the OP's question.. the answer is Yes and i3 550 @4.5ghz will be more than enough for todays games.
As far as You Antuk15... Take Your "Fan Boy EGO" crap some where else.. Just about every thread with Your posts are all the same. And for the love of all that is Holy grow the hell Up.
I apologize to the Op for this derailment and Also to the whole of OCN for this "Stupid" bickering... Since I have Joined OCN this kinda crap has shown up More and More.. It gets tiring and Highly Annoying.
