I tested it out myself, and sure enough, there was no peformance decrease from disabling one of my cores... I have been skeptical ever since I built this rig. Makes me want to return everything lulz, but nah, thats Oks. I think Im just going to get a beefier video card for more FPS. So, I think for gaming specifically, we really dont need a 4th core? Seems like 3 is good enough. That AMD 720BE sure is looking good right about now. I went to go look at it on newegg, and the price went up $55 haha. I build budget gaming rigs for people all the time ($500 we talking here). I have yet to build someone a quad rig, but now it seems like its not even necessary. Kinda relieved a little that even a cheap Athlon II X3 would be sufficient in a budget build with the video card being the more powerful and expensive component. Thoughts?
