Question... So if I just got a new 2.6 Quad core i7 with 16 gigs of RAM, how can I measure how much faster this would be than my old 3.06 Ghz Intel Core Duo with 8 gigs of Ram. Both systems use 7200 rpm hard drives.

I want to know what the difference is (big?) so that I can justify going out and spending the money. I looked at a few sites but really want to compare these exact specs. Anyone out there have any good advice?

Download Passmark. After you run it, it will place your machine on a graph comparing it to others with their stats, etc.

what are you going to be doing with it?
pcs have reached a point now where they don't need to get any better unless you are doing some specialised task
*gaming
*video editing
* cad work
etc.

are you a gamer?
these days a new pc isn't worth it for just internet etc.
the best upgrade any pc can get is an ssd drive
are you sure you don't wanna just do that?

Alternatively.. if you don't wanna run a benchmark.

Just compare the scores there to get get a rough estimate.
