thank you guys for reply... very useful... :-)

so for you guys who have experiecen with this cpu, do you really "feel" it??


i think you really need to figure out how you are going to be using
the system.  if you are running a farm of machines running
multi-threaded app's then i'd say yes - multi-core systems are a
benefit (as you get more core's to run threads on w/o generating as
much heat and eating as much power as a second cpu socket).

if you are running heavily multi-threaded desktop apps, i'd say yes -
it may be helpful for similar reasons mentioned above.

if you are using your desktop like %90 of unix people out there
(web/mail and ssh'ing into servers) i'm not sure having two cores (let
alone multiple CPU's) is worth the price.

Assuming you're not operating some sort of high-volume web/mail apps :).
