Just setting up my core again with a new motherboard and was wondering if any here unlock there cores?
I have a 2.7GHz Sempron 140. I believe this is powerful enough to run the core (dedicated core only)
Is it better to keep the low power and better stability (is that correct?) or to get more processing power?
I don't think the core needs that much processing power is that right?
That is correct, you really don't need that much oomph, and as _if_ says, stability is more important.
I bought the cheapest dual core going for my Core, and it never breaks a sweat; probably should have gone single core and saved myself a few quid. I've only 2 gigs of RAM as well, will upgrade to 4 if I get any spare, but I'm in no rush, everything runs fine.
