Quad-Core is usually enough today, save you're money for when you need it.
If you're not a gamer and not doing CPU intensive tasks (eg: Video Encoding) then even a Core i3 (Dual Core, with HyperThreading) is quite snappy.

If you want 'real' snappy performance then I'd suggest getting a Samsung 830 or 840 (new firmware) SSD, or an Intel SSD for your main OS drive, it makes far more difference in response times that double the CPU clock-speed or even core count.

AMD A8-5600K Trinity APU with a snappy SSD

Pick up some low-latency DDR3 2133 and roll with it.

If you are the tweaking type, you could experiment with lowering the RAMs speed a bit while dropping the timings even further to snap things up even more .....

IF you're not gaming at all, the A8 or 965 is MORE than enough for you.
