too bad that most apps/games cant fully take advantage of multiple CPU threads.

For the average user, you are generally better off for home/gaming use in getting the fastest dual core processor with the most cache rather than a quad core at this point.

Why not to get a quad core processor:

in a business/application enviroment....
