update to quad core or dual core cpu?

  theDarkness 19:16 24 Dec 2009

found this article from 2007, and I was wondering whether much has improved in both performance and compatability using a quad when compared to a dual core cpu, or if it really is best to update to a dual core and not take the leap for the time being until software is designed to actually use it to its fullest click here

There are argument for and against, i had a C2D E7400 , it was a monster processor, and then i "upgraded?" to a quad core Q6600 and noticed NO improvement, however thats a very balck and white view, its nice to know ive a quad core "under the bonnet" , and im sure future developers will write sw to take advantage of it. and thier not expensive now either.
