WTF?! I just bought dual core (E6750) because I thought games don't really use Quad Core. I thought better to have faster dual core. (and I thought 2x cpu = 2x risk of failure).

Lost Planet uses about 80% of a quad-core system in several scenes.

Lost Planet for sure. I lost interest in GOW about half way through, while I was glued to LP from start to end. Great game!

LP is a better choice, GoW has simply weird controls, and live is horrible.

so glad that Capcom striped out Live and replaced it with Steam instead.
