Forgive the n00b style question, but what advantage does the San Diego core have over the Winchester, besides the double cache?

I would guess for gaming as of now 3700+ and overclocking. Dunno if I want a dual core just yet. Got me thinking lol.

well i just read some an article on this months MAXIMUM PC mag and it says that those dual core cpu's aren't going to do almost anything for gaming until they start making games and apps so that they take advantage of the technology. They do say however that those dual cores are going to do wonders for floating point intensive apps. they say you'll be able to encode a DVD, listen to music and surf the net without your pc locking up. Now if you're talking about gaming your best bet is to stick to the San Diego, It's fast and not too expensive not to mention 1MB L2 cache

While they wont improve performance, they WILL work much better while something runs in the background. A 3500 winnie will probably be on par with the dual core 4200, but once you run something CPU intensive in teh background, the winnie's performance halves, and the dual core stays up there.
