I had a 2.8ghz for like over 5 years, never needed more power. I just upgraded to a 3 core AMD and it's way more power than I need. My wife has the same machine but with an SSD drive and I can't imagine needing more desktop horsepower in the next decade. There's just nothing at the desktop level that we do that uses horsepower.
whaaaaaaaaaaat? even lightweight video editing/rendering will bring your system to a stand still. I'm looking for a ram upgrade as i would like to have a few extra VM's running on my different monitors, heck im even looking for more monitors! i think a total of 4 - 6 would be PERFECT!
if you don't need more power you are doing it wrong ;-)
