    It depends upon if your a single or multi use dude, but at the moment it would be better to get a dual core for the most up to date software coming out this year, I dunno if the new software will be out soon or anything about it, but I recommend a single core for the moment if you are going to be doing only video editing, but beware of the future if you do!

    Anyone who recommends a single core CPU for anything other than a full on budget PC is an idiot and 99% of PC users have been multi-tasking for years even though most still don't realize it yet.
