    Ok, right now I have the following setup:

    P4 2.8 s478
    Asus P4G8X
    2 GB DDR
    PreSonus Firepod

    I am thinking of upgrading to a dual core system since they seem pretty cheap these days:

    P4 D830 3.0Ghz s775
    Asus P5P800
    2 GB DDR

    The main reason I want to upgrade is I plan to use my old box as a vst plugin slave using fx teleport. Now my question is, will I have problems with a dual core system with my applications? Or are there similar issues as with hyper threading? What do you guys think?

    Ok, so I searched Ableton forums to find out no dual core/cpu support... not even HT. So I guess a dual core would be a waste then. :(

    :D Have a look at this month's Sound On Sound magazine. It gives a good outline on dual cores and other approaches.
