I will be getting a new computer soonish for my home and for when I go to Uni and i was wondering about the different types of processors and how much a Dual Core will affect overall performance of the computer over a Single Core.
The two different Processors i am looking at are the Intel Pentium4 single core 3.2GHz, and the Intel PentiumD Dual Core 2.8GHz.
I will use the computer very reguarly for running programs such as Blender, Photoshop, iTunes, MSN, and Graphically intensive games. I often run many programs simultaneously and i quite often burn CD’s/import songs whilst playing games(currently this makes the game very laggy on a P4 Single Core 2.8GHz)
I am looking for comments/suggestions as to which would suit me better.
