    Obviously, go for the 64 x2 option, as two cores do a better job than a single core any day.

    Some people may contradict me, but why not go for the Intel Core2Duo processors, as money seem to be no problem for you (the difference in cash is translated in better performance). Or Intel Quad Core, the Q6600 may be a bit more expensive more that a Core2Duo 6600. I would say that the Q6600 would be better than any of the two AMD options, but you will have to look for another motherboard.

    At home, I have an Intel Core2Duo E6300, 2GB ram (GEIL Ultra) and Abit AW9D motherboard and don't have fps problems when playing GOW2 or using Photoshop CS3 or any audio/video encoding tools.
