  • Help me decide on a new PC?

    Alright so I'm going to be ordering a new desktop PC, I've decided to go for Dell and have chosen 2 models in particular. However, my question is what processor is better to go for?

    "Intel® Core™ 2 Quad-Core Q8300 Processor (2.50GHz, 4MB cache, 1333MHz FSB)" (6GB of DDR ram on this pc model)

    OR

    "Intel® Core™ i3 Processor 530 (2.93GHz, 4MB)" (8GB of DDR3 ram on this pc model)

    ?

    Now I'm not going to be doing much gaming, my main purpose will be music production, so using various music software packages aswell as some video editing. But in general, I'd prefer the more faster model, but I do understand it's more complicated than that.

    I know the i3 is the new range from Intel and a Dual core, but is it faster than than the old Quad core?

    If any PC buff's can help me pick 1 of those models out and give reasons I will appreciate it very much!
    Oh yeaaaah

    I would take the 2nd one.

    I'm wondering if the 2nd one also produces less heat.

          I got an HP at best buy for $590(after taxes) It was the only laptop in the store that had an i3 processor or better for under $600. I love it

            The Core i3-530 is worse than the Core 2 Quad Q8300.
