Retoucher/Photographers hardware sweet spot

Am about to upgrade my computer but don't have unlimited funds. Will be running CS5 and a lot of older software. What do you think the sweet spot for a processor would be Core Duo, Quad Core or P7. This is not a request for views on the best but the best value for money that suits a Photography and Retouching. I am also probebly going to stick with XP as an operating system as I don't think all my software will run on Win 7 though I could have a dual system. What do you think?
