    Putting together a new computer for a friend, was wondering if the dual core would be better for future gaming.Using the new ASUS a8n32 sli board with 2 7800 gtx cards.Any input would be helpfull, as I have only used Intel before. Thanks.

    Dual Core will with a little bit of Time be better for gaming, right now they are neck and neck, but I WOULDNT dare spend that kind of money on the FX-57 that is just crazy.

    So between the 2 The Dual Core

    If you dont want the Dual Core then An Opteron 150, or maybe even a Dual Core Opteron, but dont buy the FX-57 now when there are several processors out now capable of hitting FX-57 speeds without the hefty price tag.

    with new drivers form nvidia and ati, dual core is beating single cores up to 200mhz faster.

    this is in benchmarks, but real world performance theres no real evidence of them being better, but they are the same.

    if this is to be a rig to last a while then go dual core, as in the next year there should be dual threaded games, and then dual core will be the ONLY way.

    What about a dual core opteron? They are about the same price.

    Dual Core opteron would be a good choice. theyre meant for handling server loads so you know you're in good hands. They apparently overclock extremely well, too.

    QFT. This is a completely on target description and is the top choice for a current purchase. An Opteron 170 is a massively powerful chip at stock, but can be cranked up to 2.8 to possibly 3Ghz with little extra voltage if any extra at all is even needed.
