Default i7 950 vs i7 990X

Hi all,

I am thinking of upgrading my CPU from the Intel QuadCore i7 950 3.07 GHx to the Intel 6 Core i7 990X 3.47 GHz CPU.

I am using all 8 cores in the Quad for folding, and need to find out if all 12 cores in the i7 990X will do F@H enough better than the quad to justify the cost difference?

I have found a new one for a decent price, so as soon as I get some worthy advice , I will make a decision and update you.

Thanx in advance for any help.

Take care...........
