I'd stick with what you have,unless you plan on doing serious amounts of encoding or folding or both.Although there are a few games that use a quad core cpu right now,Penryn will be here soon offering even lower prices and better performance.SC and Bioshock are not enough to currently warrant it.Then again,Strangehold willl be out soon,as will Crysis and UT3.

I plan on buying them all and already fold & encode a lot of video,so it was a simple decision on my part.

Not cutting it at 3.7Ghz?!?! WTF are you doing with your PC... I run my C2D at 3.0Ghz and I have run into no slow downs at all yet. What C2D do you have? Even the lower end ones that OC high I can't see being terribly taxed by anything out yet unless you do a ton of rendering with the CPU.
