So.. as the title says, I am currently using an Intel Core i5 650 processor with 4gb DDR3 Ram on a Gigabyte H55M-UD2H Motherboard.
I got a great Mobo/CPU combo deal at Fry's Electronics for my current setup @ $200 USD. To get the quad-core will cost me only $100 more. I could have 8gb of RAM for around the same price. What are your guys' thoughts?
I am using my computer for music production in Cubase 5.
And as a side question, does anybody know the compatability at the moment with 64-bit Windows and the majority of high-end (audio/film/photo) applications in the event I upgrade RAM over CPU?
I love these forums and all of the knowledgeable people on here and really look forward to hearing feedback regarding my issue.

i5-750+4GB > i5-650+8GB
p.s. 4GB is more than sufficient and I rarely encounter a situation where more than 3GB is used!
Wow!! I'm speechless. Thank you soo much! I think I've seen your postings before and noticed your i5-750. Awesome!
