Sorry for the title guys, wanted to make it short but give the idea of my question.
Well, as it says there, I'll be getting a new PC,
the thing is that someone wants to buy my current pc, so I said, Hell yeah!
But if I'm gonna get a new one, I want it to be a Lot better than my current one.
So I said to my self "Hey, may be I should go Dual Core, whatever that is",
as you can see, I no s*#$ about processors; I went and did some reading and now Im not sure what should I do,
I mean, is a Core processor actually 'faster'?, or is it just good cus of the multitasking stuff?
Cust I read that not all Apps work well on this processors.
You see, I'm currently into High Def content and as you can guess that
takes lots of resources, I also like to edit Video and make my DVDs from tapes and stuff.
And in a near future I would like to get a 720p HD Tv to play my grwing collection of x264 files from my PC (see what I mean?)
Anyway, and before I confuse you more,
here go my Current PC Specs,
and I would really appreciate your advice or recommendations
about what to make my new Setup, cus I'll be without PC in a week or so.
(btw ideal budget $500 UD Dlls, but might... just might be willing to go $six700... )
