Steve's conclusions seem very "best right now" weighted which is a metric some will value more than others, in this regard the price/perf of the 6 core parts cannot be touched. I guess it depends on how long you intend to keep the upgrade for, in which case the 8 core should outlast the 6 cores whilst also retaining higher market value.
