    Dual core or fast single for graphic work?

    Friend of mine wants to get into designing stuff and plans on using some powerful graphics software and I'm wondering which would be a better choice for a cpu. He's going to get a 7800GT vid card and tons of ram but the cpu question is a mystery. Thanks.
    AND Phenom X3 8650
    Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H mobo
    Sapphire HD3870 vid card
    2 GB PC 6400 DDR2
    74GB Raptor
    320 Seagate SATA HDD
    500W Fortron Blue Storm PSU

    Re: Dual core or fast single for graphic work?

    With Vista coming out I would go with the Dual Processor. In the near future most of the better software will be written to take advantage of the dual processors.
    Asus M8Z77-V Deluxe
    Intel 3770K
    G-Skill 1600 16G
    Corsair H100
    EVGA 670 GTX
    2 Corsair Force 3 120G (Raid 0)
    2 x Seagate 1T 6G
    2 Samsung SyncMaster T260HD Monitors
    Thermaltake Level 10 UGK
    Silverstone Olympia OP1000 1000W
    Windows 8

    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
