  1. which dual core? and what are you using it for?
  2. I would likely say no, but it depends on what you are using it for. Many of the core2duos have a higher amount of throughput (faster in regards to Ghz) but less bandwidth (bottlenecked if both cores are being utilized at a high rate).

    If you are using multiple programs/applications that support multithreading up to 4 cores (most games now days do support this), I would likely say you will get a better bang for your buck from a core2quad in my opinion.
  3. Im not quite sure if there are Core 2 Duo CPU's that perform better than quad cpu's.

    But compare the spesifications: L1 L2 L3 cach and the GHz.
    Depends on what software you are using aswell. As most softwares do not support 4 Core Cpu's.
