Is this for the computer in your signature or another one? If another one then you need to know what motherboard you have, you need to match the socket of the processor and motherboard and you may need to update the BIOS to support the processor you intend to buy.

OK, that wasn't clear. So whats the question? If its should you go single core versus dual core then you should go dual core, thats where software support is going, more and more applications are supporting multi-core/processor systems. You'll find many applications and games benefit more from a second core versus a slightly higher clock speed.
