    e.g. would CS4, when rendering motion video, do better with giving it as much RAM as possible on a 2.9GHz dual core machine (e.g. 8GB)?

    Or having a 2GB eight-core machine running 2.26GHz as going to 2.66GHz adds $1500 and would kill me? :D

    Thx!

    Thanks much!

    Looks like I will go for a 2.66GHz Quad core w/8GB. $800 for twice as many cores (and double the hyperthreading the single quad core offers) doesn't offer too much in return benefits...
