Which processor is better?

Aug 12, 2007
  1. Core 2 Duo E6850

    or the intel quad core 2.4?

    might seem dumb but some one told me stick with my e6850 =/

    depends on what you intend on using it for.

    if you're a gamer - multi core cpus won't give you too much of an edge except on a few select titles.

    if you multitask then more cores are better.

    Future games will take advantage of multiple cores so get the Core 2 Quad instead. There are just a handful right now but upcoming titles will be multi-threaded.
