I have a question for you pros. I am a heavy gamer and I am upgrading my MB (motherboard) and CPU. The question that I have is one that I cannot figure out myself.
Intel's Core i5 750 is a quad core processor, four physical cores. The new 2010 Models are Dual Core's but they have hyperthreading, thus giving you 4 Virtual Core's.
WHAT IS BETTER FOR GAMING, and why?
Thanks for your time!
Either one will work about the same in games, at least when you crank the details up. Wiht a single graphics card, the GPU is still the bottleneck at high resolutions and details. I'd rather have everything maxed at 50FPS than to have everything turned down at 100FPS....just so I can see my processor is faster.
