Is there a great increase in performance with going with a "Duel Core" as oppose to a higher processor speed?
We are upgrading a workstation here @ work.
We are looking are running photo, works Illustrator and photo shop.
Processor choices:1.. Intel® Pentium® D Processor 830, 3.00GHz, DC, 2X 1MB L2, 800,EN 2.. Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 650, 3.40GHz, 2MB L2, 800MHz,English If we go with the cheaper processor we could up grade the video card.
The rest of the system will consist of:
Win XP sp22GB, 667MHz, DDR2 SDRAM Memory, ECC
Samsung 940B 19" LCD128MB PCIe x16 nVidia Quadro FX 1400
Or is it really worth the extra $450 to move up to:256MB PCIe x16 nVidia Quadro FX 3450
We are running SW 2006 sp3
Any opinions would really help
