    Your motherboard is FAR from obsolete. Obsolete would be a socket 1 motherboard that uses ISA components. Last computer i built, I built right when the Intel Core2 came out. Is it obsolete? Heck no, still kicks butt on hardware intensive games. But is it obsolete? (as long as PCI-E is still the standard, it won't be)

    Right, it takes awhile for something to become truly obsolete, I was just saying that my PC was old in terms of what the new tech was. But it was only a month or so old, by know means obsolete. I mean graphics cards get outdated about every other month or so now it seems. But that doesn't mean that the old ones are worthless.

    So just be happy with what you get because regardless of what you get, it will be beat in a short amount of time. Just be happy with it.

    Just wanted to clarify a little haha. Besides I personally think that a dual core CPU in a phone is a little ridiculous I can understand wanting it and all, but its borderline cheap laptop territory haha.

    I am just curious as to whether or not these new Qualcomm parts are still based on their "Scorpion" Cortex A-8 cores or are they Cortex A-9? That's the only thing the announcement has not made clear and there is no information anywhere on the interwebs that gives specifics.

    I guess the word I was looking for was "outdated", it was an older motherboard to begin with and this was a few years back.

    It would be pretty pointless to overclock a dual core snapdragon CPU.

    One has to wonder what the effect on battery will be with two 1.2 screaming in the phone. The heat probably will be an issue. My droid gets warm just running navigation coming home from work.

    Is Android built to utilize dual core? Would it be an easy switch over if it isn't? I would imagine it is possible since it is built off linux kernel.
