Thanks for the explanation, Randall. When I eventually get a quad-core
I'll keep all this in mind.

I think Randall put it very well and to the point - but be aware that
this is in no way related to the CPU being quad-core.
I have put every new system I have ever built (or acquired) through a
thorough stress test. Wrt mprime, the stress test facility is there to
ascertain the reliabilityof a machine as the regular outcome of mprime
feeds in to a bigger project where reliability and accuracy are
essential for the end result.
