Leveraging Quad Core - Timeline

I am in the same boat as many on this forum -- working with our staff to specify a system that most effectively runs SW for the $. From the many posts, the current consensus seems to be that a fast Core2 Duo is a better value than a Core2 Quad, this being derived from SW not taking advantage of multi-threading. I have not read anything confirming multi-threading leveraging in SW2009. Can anyone provide a development timeline for multi-threading? Perhaps Greg Jankowski can shed some light on this -- SW2010, SW20011?

Our replacement timeline is ~2.5 years. I need to know if we go with Duo in the near term for value, if we will be kicking ourselves for 2, 1, or 0 years.

All of the information on this forum is appreciated. I was able to gain a great deal of knowledge from the posts. Thanks!
