I'm curious what you guys would recommend for what I plan to be using a mac pro for. I do not do 3d design really, though I might dabble in photoshop for fun. The main reason I want a mac pro is for storage space and to play games on. I want to use a GTX285 and I also want to run vmware fusion full time. I'd like to have OS X be my main os with Windows 7 and Ubuntu running in the background. So basically i'm not sure if it's better to have like four cores dedicated to Windows 7/Ubuntu while i have my other set of cores dedicated to OS X? Also, I'm thinking about waiting until the next Mac Pro update, which I think they might introduce Intel's new chip and you'd probably see 6 core and 12core versions.
