    Ok, so my "use a Macbook Pro as a desktop replacement experiment" is over. It was pretty fast. But when when editing large files in Photoshop CS6, it was like riding in a Cessna. Fans o'plenty.

    Anyway, below are my specs, and I plan to upgrade to 24GB of RAM, and if the WWDC fails to impress, a 6-core processor.

    But what about a video card? As stated I deal with large files in Photoshop, and they tend to get "pokey" with layer effects. I don't do much video. Mainly desktop publishing, and internet. Is there a card out there that would make a difference for me?

    Thank you for you help.

    MP 5,1
    2.8 Quad
    16GB RAM
    SSD Boot/Apps
    ATI Radeon 5770
    10.7.6 (don't mind upgrading to 10.8 to get a cheaper card if it matters/helps)

    GTX 680. You won't believe the difference.
