Please guys help me i am a bit confused. I do not which one is better, Core 2 duo or Core 2 Quad. If you think i should wait for some time to cash on new releases i would be willing to do so. My intel865 is giving me a big problem.
I am confused about the motherboard and the processor only. My primary use is developing web pages and designing them. Also i like gaming a lot. Now there are some questions which i think you people can help me figure out.

1. If i buy a motherboard which supports core 2 quad can i use 1 amd chip with one intel chip on it.
2. If i buy a motherboard which supports quad core will it also support duo as well.
3. What is the difference in the 975 model and the 965 model of intel motherboards. (coz 965 is 4500 rupees here and 975 is 9800 rupees)

1) No.
2) Should do, check the CPU support list before you buy though.
3) To most people, there isn't any, though the 975 is a newer chipset.

They're all right for what they are but you will need a separate video card if you want to game, because onboard graphics will not do it.
