upgrading imac 2.16 Core2Duo to Mac mini 2.5 i7 Dual core

Hi all,

i am looking at upgrading my four year old imac(White,2gb ram, 2.16core 2 duo).

the new mac minis come with i5 and i7's and 4-8gb ram. Sadly they are both dual core, although the i7 has hyper-thread to make it look like four cores to OSX.

how much do you think I would gain by upgrading? i would feed two 22"(23) screens of it. i am just worried since its still "only" a dual core... or do i get the 21.5" imac with i7 quad core...

any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
