I couldn't wait anymore - I bought an 8-Core today... I also picked up the 30" Cinema Display. Putting in 3 x Intel SSD in Raid 0 with 1 TB WD RE4 Backup Drive. GTX 285 on its way. The reason I did was because... What really is coming to come out in the next 6 months that will really make a difference? I mean I use CS5, Final Cut, and a host of other creative tools. Hence the reason for the 8-Core. I mean yes, faster processors, more RAM, etc... But maybe a new video card as well, which I should be able to use in my machine anyways. So I thought the 8-core for resale value and now I can get down to work instead of pacing back-and-forth at night wether or not to wait or pull the trigger on a new Mac Pro. I am happy I did.
