Core 2 Quad or Core i5 760??? Which is Best??
#1
NEED QUICK REPLY!!
Core 2 quad and core i5 760 both r 4 core processors.....so which one is best for gaming ( both PCSX 2 and PC games)...

Another thing.... Dual cores have more gigahertz (Clockspeed) than 4 core processors,,,,what does that mean????

But i think 4 cores are better than dual ones...Isnt IT??? Please Explain....
Still planning to buy new System.

CONFUSED BETWEEN.....
Core i3 550 @ 3.20 Ghz (2 Cores)
and
Core i5 760 @ 2.8 Ghz (4 cores)
EXPECTING REPLY...

just go grab the i5 its newer and much more better at overclocking and How could you confuse an i3 with an i5, i3 is a dual core while the i5 is quad core its that simple although I dont think you will get much of a performance difference on PCSX2 since it only uses 2cores so PCsx2 wont benefit at all or maybe just little bit on having a quad so what Pcsx2 need is a higher clockspeed CPU but getting a quad now will get you ready futurewise if ever a game only requiring a quad to run on ever comes out

Thanks...i5 its ok for PCSX 2..
But what about future PC games???
Isn't i5 760 enough for PC games.?

nah futurewise its enough maybe for the next 2-3 years just go grab yourself a decent Graphics card and RAM upto 3-4g and you are done

for future games get the quad core it has more cores think of it like this

3.2ghz dual core
2 cores x ghz
3.2 times 2cores = 6.4ghz

i5 has 4 cores with 2.8ghz
2.8 times 4 cores = 11.2 ghz

core i5 wins and is better over all

ok that is totally wrong...

but the idea is that the 2 core cpu with high clocks is better for pcsx2 and the 4 core cpu with "midi" clocks is better for EVERYTHING else (specially for the future...) and average at pcsx2...

Since when does 4 core mean 4 x frequency? = =
CPU: i7 930 @ 2.8GHz(Everyday)/3.6GHz(Gaming)/4.0GHz(Encoding)
GPU: Geforce GTX 480 @ 850MHz/1001MHz
Motherboard: ASUS P6X58D-E

It should be noted that the 2.8GHz i5-760 Lynnfield would be roughly equivalent to a 3GHz i3 Clarkdale. Figure in Turbo Boost (up to 3.33GHz with 2 active cores for i5-760) and the i5-760 beats the i3-550 if not overclocking even in PCSX2.

i talked about the general idea.... i didnt wanna get into details like turbo boost or architecture cause it makes things more complicated for ppl that dont know allot about all those staff.... an example of my general idea is that a core 2 duo 3.2ghz is allot faster than a 2.4ghz quad core cpu for PCSX2 for example....

Right! So i think i will go with the i5 760. and how about this 1156 socket motherboard :-
Gigabyte GA P55 UD5

Tell me soon.
