So if I buy the single cpu dual core, I should get at least the same or better performance than a dual cpu, right?
Also, will it show two CPU's in task manager or one?
The best way to think of dual core is Intel/AMD have taken to seperate chips and squezed them into one package. So yes, dual core is almost idendical to two seperate single core chips.
A basic dual core 1U server from dell should be in the <£1K range.
