It could be a toss up. If you are running multiple programs at the same time, then the quad processor will process more instructions across multiple programs. I would look closely at the processor specs at INTEL. Also, get the best video card you can afford if you don't already have the best. :rolleyes:

I wondered about hat myself until I realised that very few apps take advantage of multi core CPUs.

 

What does make a big difference however is the amount of Level 2 cache on the cores.

 

My e6750 outperforms most of the quad core CPUs simply because it has a huge 4 MB L2 cache.

 

If you can afford it then go for the e series quad core, if not, go for the dual core - just make sure you get the biggest L2 cache available

Your E8400 is a very good processor. Try some heavy video and CPU intensive processes and then at the same time look at task master's performance monitor. Are both processors pegged at 100%? If no, then a quad processor will do little improvement for the work that you are doing. Moving up to the E8600 from the E8400 isn't going to buy you much.

 

Developers are working on multiple cpu video processing programs so in the future mulitple cpus will provide improved benefit.

 

Think: CPU, MEMORY and I/O ... Improve one and the others then become the bottleneck. :glare:

Hi Big Dave,

 

I have a Nvidia 8800GTS 512Mb video card for now...

You have an excellent PC system. Are you having a particular performance issue? There are some 10,000 RPM hard drives that would improve performance if disk I/O is a bottleneck for you. Solid state devices as hard drives once the price comes down will offer even better performance. Improving the I/O response time usually offers the biggest performance improvement and pay back as it's generally the biggest component part of "total thruput or transaction" time. Obviously CPU intensive work would benefit from a faster processor.
