    Well, "other apps" is kind of a loose term. What kind of other apps do you have in mind?

    No games to date (that I know of?) have multiple threads for dual core/cpu systems (this is going to change in the near future). But if you are comparing a single core 3ghz to a dual core 3ghz you might as well go dual core. I am not from the intel camp so I am not sure if there is a difference in cache, HT, FSB or anything like that with those CPU's... but you might as well get the "better" one.
