I am going to build a new desktop, and will be Intel based. I am torn between getting a quad core or the 2.4Ghz Core Duo 2 chip. I lean towards quad since more and more games are now coming out that will use a quad core. And those games I was planning on playing already. I am also going to get Vista and I hear quad core will run Vista better also. Just wondering what everyone around here is running or if they do have a quad what they think about it? I know SupCom, Crysis, HL2:Ep2, Alan Wake, Ut2k7, just to name a few off the top of my head will all support multi-core CPUs. Then I am not sure what to do on the Gfx card front either. I want a 8800GTX again, but ATI is somewhat close to releasing their new R600 but who know when and what it will support. If their new card still doesn't do vertex textures I am writing them off.
So what are everyones thoughts on 64bit Vista vs. 32bit Vista? Can I play games that are out now with 64bit Vista?
