Get a quad like the Phenom II 955. And it's black edition.

If you post a full list of your current specs and also what you intend to use your system for then we can give you more precise advice based on your needs.

That aside, if they are the only two processors you're looking at then I'd strongly advise going for the i3 since the C2D utilises what is now a dead platform hence you lose a vital upgrade path if you ever wish to upgrade your system in the future.

Wait, so you were working in an old system, yet you bought a new motherboard along with a CPU without taking any guidance?

Another purchase of RAM and you could have had a new platform.

In case I'm confused, what exactly happened?
