ooo i was kinda confused by your post, but...i would say a 3.5 GHz with 4 gigs is better. 2 gigs is really small, and would probably bottleneck that cpu. also, not that many things make full use of quad cores, so a really fast dual core is virtually the same as a sluggish quad core. hope that helped!

yeah im in a compition with my dad and so far im winning so with this stuff i will kick his a55 but as from a longevity stand point is the dual core a good idea becouse lga 775 is getting phased out ddr2 is getting phased out so im also trying to figre out should i get the quadcore now and up grade my ram later or shuld i get the ram now and the quad core later witch do you think will have the higest price increse the ddr2 or the quadcore
