If I knew how I could I would!... but still... there's a certain conviction in what you were saying at least!
Quad core prices could come down in price, or they might not. Software, including operating systems, will definitely be optimised for more cores..... and that might happen, in a bug free state, this year, it might not. It could be in time for Snow Leopard, it might not. Logic will also have to be updated, as will it's plug ins, 3rd party and otherwise, for it to take advantage of a) snow leopard and b) muti cores. That could happen this year.... or it might not. As a result, if you hold off for buying a new computer hoping that the planets will align in your favour... you might be waiting a while.... or you might not.
There's no easy answer I'm afraid BUT, what is a fact is even with a Quad core machine, I've yet to see any one max one out ... even with BIG logic sessions. Hence why I personally think your money is better off going towards a truck load of RAM and separate hard drives. You have to think of your system as a combination of bottle necks and hard drive and RAM choking will happen a LOT sooner than processor speeds maxing out.... Snow Leopard, Logic 10 and superfangalistic hyperthreading enabled.... or not!
I might be being devils advocate here.... but do you need a Mac Pro? If money saving is the game then how about a well specced iMac with external hard drives for sample bays etc?
