Im a Graphic Designer using the Adobe CS2 pack as well as Quark Xpress and Macromedia apps for web design professionally. On the other hand, as a hobbyist, im doing my DV stuff using Premiere and Aftereffects! Do i really need to get a MPro Octo or should i just get a Quad? Will the Quad suit my needs? Im puzzled cause i was told that the 8cores of the Octo are not utilized by those apps (Adobe CS2). Perhaps After Effects and Premiere can put 8cores to work easier but then again i will only be using those apps for my hobbyist leisure time! What should i do?
