I'm just curious on what the general consesus is, for a gaming rig. Would you rather have an overclocked processor or attempt to unlock multiple cores? I know some but not all games take advantage of multi-core CPU's, but most games nowadays require at least a Dual-Core. I have a Phenom II x2 555 BE. I know it has unlocked multipliers for overclocking and it can be unlocked, maybe? Just wondering what you all prefer? If you had the choice?
