If this is just a home gaming toy, then how are you going to keep 8 cores busy? Video work - can your apps dish out threads to 8 cores? If its for a website server, then I would definitely go with more cores, more ram, more data storage, more internet bandwidth....

editing doesn't really need the extra RAM

I say phase and stay Quad G0... upgrade every time a $300 chip comes along wasing about $100 each time...

Why: If you stay on the consumer end you'll be in 5k territory by thre time you need it... Phase is a good investment Audi... you'll consistently get .5GHz more out of your chips instead of having to pay $1000 per chip for the same difference... $1000 chips depreciate like mad, $300 loose less cash and can get to the same levels if u Phase... phase doesn't really depreciate but needs a bit of maintenance... the consumer market is bigger, and we can cut 1080p without sweating already...

Q6600 G0 + top shelf Phase for $900...
then Native Quad when they hit $300... Oct when they hit $300... on and on...

95% chances you'd have 4.0GHz x 4 = 16GHz in a few weeks when you received your phase from someone like Chilly1
40% + that you'd be more like 17GHz

Yes... Raylight can use up to 8 cores today for render and preview... and during render they'd all be close to maxed... it uses what's available... this is real use, not a toy... I would hope that during playback you would also be able to keep all cores busy with filters and it may be so... we don't know cause nobody has built such a machine...
