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
well the quad core is 775 and it would probably be using ddr2 aswell
