My System Specs

Default

I see this argument all of the time WRT gaming, but not everybody uses their computers for gaming applications all of the time.

I prefer quads (you wouldn't know it by my sig right now, but check back on the 27'th :) ) because I like to fold 24/7 and I like the fact that the < 10% free processing power left over still allows me to do everything I want from ripping CDs, streaming my media content, surfing, and heaven forbid... running productivity apps like OpenOffice and Paint.net all at the same time while still having a computer which seems damn near as speedy with all of that stuff running at 100% of its requirements as it does running only one of the apps.
