    Hi,

    Student going to try to learn fcp 5 on an old dual powermac. Please don't laugh.

    I've already checked the minimum requirements so I should be fine.

    My question is which of the following is better for FCP:

    dual g4 450 with 1.25 gigs of ram vs dual 533 with 1 gig of ram

    I'd go with the 533. I'm thinking processing power would be more valuable than the additional RAM. Also, I would hazard a guess that additional RAM could be obtained fairly easily to boost the total to the max of 1.5GB, and probably for cheap (even by student standards).

    Just my opinion.
