    Well not counting price and other factors, just looking at the processor and ram, which do you guys suggest for photography and videography.

    One 2.93GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon vs Two 2.26GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

    Up to the apps you are using. Quad core will run circles around 8-core in tasks that cannot utilize all 8 cores but you need to tell what apps are you going to use

    2.93 Quad plus an SSD will feel a LOT faster than the entry Octo for the same money.
