    I'm planning on buying mac pro but can't decide between quad core and 8 core processor...

    I've read a lot on this forum already but can't find an answer if 8 core processor would be better for running vmware fusion with windows?

    I would run most of the time Lighroom, Photoshop on OSX and on the windows I would have other application running at the same time.

    I know that for photography workflow quadcore is more than enough for now, but also I would like to keep this computer for another 3-4 years.

    what is your opinion?

    I'm planning on adding more RAM as well, no graphic card update though (I'm not a gamer :) )
