I am now getting ready to do a substantial amount of photo editing this
year and have been using an AMD-dual core 2.6ghz cpu

It works very well but since I also have a quad core machine I decided
to give it a try.  Both machines have 8 gigs of DDR2 and identical
nvidia graphics ...the quad core CPU is AMD but only 1.8 ghz

Bottom line: the dual core machine processes images /considerably/ faster.

Correct me if I'm wrong , but it sure appears CPU speed is critical

and not the number of cores.
