I am thinking about using some of my financial aid money this semester to upgrade a few things in my computer. One of the things that I'm going back and forth on the most is jumping from a dual-core processor to a quad-core processor. My question to you, fellow Bombers, is if such a jump is really necessary. I have a pretty nice dual-core processor right now (3.3 Ghz unclocked), and it seems to do well enough. Would a quad-core really make that much of a difference in games, enough to warrant the nearly $400 it would cost me to switch (CPU, motherboard, RAM)? Or should I just spend a little extra on a nice video card (currently rocking a 5750, which is a bit weak at this point) to get a much bigger leap in performance?
