Need new computer Quad Core?

I need some advice on the right kind of computer to replace my single core 4 year old one. I am going the Bare bones route. So let me give you some info first.
I am not a gamer. I will not load down my new computer with a lot of junk.
I use my computer for office work for my home business and photography.
I use CS2 and other smaller programs but will upgrade to CS4 soon
I use the A700, 7D, and later I hope a A900.
I will only use XP professional Windows.
I use a Sun Mirco Systems 21 inch monitor.

My question is will a quad core type be best for photography and processing with the above cameras? How much memory should I get. I know the more the better where is a good start?

I was looking at Tiger Direct at the XFX 750a SLI socket AM2+. AMD model. Tiger Direct item #P4509118G for anyone who cares to look it up.
Any advice would be appreicated.
