Dual Core v Quad Core

  Proclaimer 22:34 22 Mar 2009

Which is better?
I know it will depend on what the PC is used for but is for example a Quad core at 2.6 better or worse that a Dual core running at 3.0 for todays applications.

By applications think MS Office, PSE 7 and games like Warhammer 40k 2 or Diablo 3 when it arrives. All other components in the PC being equal is it worth adding the Quad Core at the slower clock speed?
