like you will ever need 8 cores for the games currently on the market......
256k of memory should be enough for any application.
In terms of games though, you are right. GPUs tend to be more of a bottleneck, but you don't buy a $4000 computer just to game. I chose to get a Mac Pro, because I needed to be able to run windows software (VMWare is great), and I wanted a computer that would last. My G5 iMac was fine other than the GeForce FX 5200. In the Mac Pro, people(I think at strangedogs) have been able to flash x1900xt graphics cards to work in Mac Pros in Windows and OS X. I can multitask much better with 4 processors than I can with 2, but I'm in dire need of more RAM... now if only I had money left over.
