I love the quad cores because they make such good general use PC's. Dual boot with a modern Linux distro and you can use a modern OS to retrieve drivers and software and what not without having to utilize a second pc, and XP runs absolutely amazing. 4gb or more of ram, throw in an SSD and it feels like a fast modern day PC.
Main pc: AsRock x370 Killer SLI a/c, Ryzen 5 2600, 1tb WD black nvme ssd, 24g ddr4 2400 @2933mhz, rx 480 8gb reference card, 2tb Hitachi Deskstar.
Retro PC: Soyo P4S Dragon, 3gb ddr 266, 120gb Maxtor, Geforce Fx 5950 Ultra, SB Live! 5.1
