First of all should I go with a dual core or a quad core. I've asked around a little and I've heard from a couple of recourses that quad cores are a waste of money because not very many programs take advantage of them. Is this true? Would I be better off going with a very fast dual core, or a decent quad core. I'd like to keep the price under $1000 for the CPU, if possible a lot less.
Secondly, I'm more partial to AMDs myself, but from what I've been reading the Intel quad cores are much better. But then again, I've had friends tell me not to believe what I've read. So basically I'm very confused there.
Please help me with any advise if you can.
