I'm in the process of planning out an htpc build. It will be used primarily to playback HD mkv's as well as a dvr using WMC. I would like to allow myself the option to add a dedicated graphics card down the road and play some games (MMORPGs mostly). Most guides I've found have been recommending the athlon x4 620 as a good budget chip, but I've also read that it would be better to get a faster dual core rather than the quad core. My concern is how long will that be the case? A few years from now will I regret not getting the quad core?
