    Ok I'm seriously considering switching from a quadcore to 8 core, tiger to leopard, and want to know about the initial transfer during setup the first time you run a computer. Are all the programs installed that were installed on the old one? i.e i have CS3, aperture, etc installed on the tiger quad core and i choose to do the fire wire transfer during the 8 core setup. Will those programs be installed and ready to use or do i have to do all that manually?

    You can choose to transfer them via Setup or Migration Assistant, but I really recommend installing them from their original sources since it's an otherwise buggy process, especially going from one OS to another.
