i'm kind of stuck about which direction i want to go. i know for sure that the i5 is better hands down [i've looked at all the benchmark tests and what not]. i know that the x6 will be better at multi-threading but other than that the two extra cores will just kinda be a bump on a log since i don't use many apps that require multi-threading that other than the occasional photochop. so this is my problem. i can either get on the next big thing by jumping on board with the hex core systems. or just have raw power with the i5. need help.
