I'm buying a new PC tomorrow. The mobo will be Gigabyte GA-8I945GMF. I'm still not sure whether to go single core or dual core: Pentium 4 3.6 GHz Vs. Pentium D920 DualCore 2x 2.8 GHz.
I work with cubase SX 3, which can really use DualCore processing. However, does this mean that the VSTi's will also benefit from this? I also use GigaStudio 3. How will this do with a DualCore? I don't want it to use just one of the 2 processors at 2.8GHz.. How about media players, etc?
