Depends what you are planning to do with the machine. Single core CPUs are still best for games which are not written to take advantage of the second core. Some more professional applications databases/CAD will be written to use multiple cores ao an X2 CPU would work best there.

It will probably change in the near future when multicore CPUs become more common. Most software will get written with multiple cores in mind.
