games: quad core
console: PS3
food: pie
ultimate choice: a pie decorated with a quad served on a ps3... :p 

on topic, if you want to ask a question, make that question clear...
games: quad-core is enough
multi-tasking: core I7 is better when the programs you use can actually use that many cores...

Core 2 Quad. Lacks Turbo Boost and has a higher latency.

i7. Has Turbo Boost which makes it a superior gamer in terms of Clockspeed. Lower latency makes it 40% faster in just about everything. Supports DDR 3 RAM and can take advantage of the latest board that come with USB 3.0 and 6 GB sec SATA.

Overclocking takes care for the absence of turbo.. Latency timings are by design so no comments on that.. However, they play significance only with highly multi-threaded scenarios and/or applications.. If you talk about gaming, there is no such big a difference..

Unless I'm reading this wrong, my answer would be "i7 is a quad core"...

Assuming the Quad Core is a Core 2 Quad Core vs an i7 and remembering that as far as the OS is concerned the i7 is an Eight Core, I own one of each. The i7 eats the Core 2 Quad in every respect. It consistently beats the Core 2 by 40% real time computing. On the Gaming side of things games load faster and hold up much better under intense graphics and action.

What kind of a post is this? :heink: 
No question... just a statement.

If there is a match like that let the OP tell the dates, venue and the ticket prices. If possible we would gladly turn up. :p

i7 vs Quad Core...
Stupid Question!
First off, an i7 is a quad core, unless its the 980x. Secondly, which quad core and which i7...
