Photoshop CS3 does make use of multi-cores, although not across the board.  The Core 2 Duo E8500 shows solid performance in this application, although if you’re a dedicated Photoshop user, the quad-core is likely a better solution.  The E8500 is definitely no slouch, and when overclocked it can deliver quad-core level performance.
