help me decide

I'm going to buy a new Mac soon. It will be a Mac pro. But I'm unsure what, in terms of processing capability will be the beat option for me.

Currently I use a mac book pro, it's quite old now, around 4 years, I must say it has been a fantastic machine, dual core 4 gig ram, and only now it's starting to give up, and it's mainly because my projects are becoming quite demanding on the CPU now.

So I'm happy to stretch and get the 8 core, I'm in a way leaning more towards this as it seems to me like the smarter decision, a it's in many ways more future proof etc. But in the back of my mind niggling me is the idea that the quad core will be enough and save me loads of money...
