Hi, I am soon going to upgrade my desktop to an i5 processor with 4 - 8gb memory. Now, have decided to go with the i5 750 a month ago, but now the p5 655K is being released. So the 750 has 4 cores, but no HT and the 655 has 2 cores with HT, allowing both to run 4 threads. So, which one of the 2 would people here suggest as being most suitable to comfortably run a few virtual desktops?
The OSes I plan to run would be Linux and Windows 7.
Personally i would go for the i5 650 as it also has vt-d. In terms of cores i dont think i twill matter tooo much whether the are virtual or real. As far as i know with virtual OS memory would be more consequential
