  1. Get a quad like the Phenom II 955. And it's black edition.
  2. 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.
  3. And what if OP does not want to upgrade their system in the future?

    KD10,
    For us to give the best advice, it would help if you posted a thread following the format and answering the questions laid out here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice
  4. Thanks for all ur inputs. As I was assembling it in a old system , i just went for Dual Core Processor and some S series motherboard. Once again thanks!!
  5. 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?
