Ok guys, enough is enough, I cannot decide which machine to buy. So this is my final posting but need as much feedback as possible. Choosing between 2.93 Quad or 2.66 Octo. Both will have more than enough RAM, 4870 video card and 3 TB HDD. Main reason for using machine is video editing, dvd authoring, photoshop and lightroom. For video and dvd, I will most likely stick with Adobe Premiere and Encore. I know these apps don't take full use of the 8 cores and RAM, and no one knows when they will. However, that aside, which processor is going to be overall better in speed and performance? Please don't point me too speed test cause I've read all of them and have no idea what I'm looking at anymore. As for the money to spend, either one is within budget, but at the same time, I don't want to waste $3000 (I am buying two machines) on the octo if I don't need it. As much feedback as possible would be great.
