Dual or quad core? Multicore rendering! Does it matter?
I have a new 3570K, with a 480gtx running on my main comp but my old comp is a Q9400 yorkfield quad core running overclocked to 3.2... because of the board limits and the 8x multiplier limit. I wanted to know if I should sell my quad core processor and by a cheaper dual core and overclock it 3.6+ so me and my gf can play at the same time! Also a 9600gt. The resolution is poor but it is doable at this point! SO! CPU>GPU>MEMORY! Remember that im a broke ass college student and so is she! PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ITS BETTER HIGHER CLOCK DUAL OR LOWER CLOCK QUAD! Multicore render?
