It's definitely worth going dual core.
I would recommend looking at at BE-2350. This is AMD's new low power (45w)
dual core CPU. It compares with a Athlon X2 4000+.
I recently purchased a mobo combo with this CPU at Fry's for $78.
It runs a lot cooler in place of the Athlon XP 2600+ that it replaced.
