I'm buildin a new PC and what I already got it's an ATI x800xl (flashing it to open the 16 pipelines), 1GB corsair 2-2-2-5 ram, DFI lanparty nf4 ultra mobo and this is my big question...
Will it be better for me a Dual Core AMD or a Sinlge Core processor??
I never do "high demanding" multitask tasks, I do use linux (debian of course), build software with Genexus, Visual basic, and C, play games.. nothing more than that and here's the deal
AMD X2 3800+ 380 bucks, runs at 2.0ghz and OC to 2.4 according to my researchs. that's it, a 2.4ghz proc for 380 bucks
AMD single core 3800+ its only 300 bucks or even less! and it actually runs at 2.4ghz and's easily OC to more than 2.7ghz... and I can afford a 4200 proc... so.. wich one is best??
Running at "just" 2.4 (if I get a good chip) but havin dual core.. wich i actually rarely need... or running at more than 2.7 with ease, even more if I get a good chip???
