the wife does printing grafixs and wants to have several programs open at the same time
like photo shop, illustrator, paint and others
will a 4 core CPU be better or a faster 2 core CPU be better

I have heard that most programs do NOT use more then one core at a time
but will each open program use a core or will they all try to run thru one core

so where should the cash be spent a faster CPU or a 4 core unit

I am think of a core 2 dual with a fast bus speed and 800 ram at max levels
with a sata 2 HD
