I agree with some of Toms article (from experience) when he states:

Investing in a fast dual-core system for performance reasons does not pay off today. Any of the professional class dual-core chips such as AMD's dual core Opteron models or the Intel Xeon dual-core 2.8 GHz are as expensive as two equivalent single-core processors running at the same clock speed. At the same time, the price difference still is large enough to purchase a professional dual-processor motherboard with its more expensive registered memory you will require - and you might still be saving some money. Furthermore, you will get two processor sockets so you can upgrade to two dual-core devices in the future.
