I see alot of people building new systems with quad cores, and my question is, Would it now be better to get a faster dual core over the quad? I understand that in the future games and programs my be able to use all four cores. But as it stands right now there is not many things that can take advantage of a quad.
As far a future proofing by the time we have multi threaded app's and games it will be upgrade then. That seems like the time to go quad.
