    I Have been agonizing over which Mac Pro would optimize the performance of my Digital Audio Workstations, Pro Tools in particular. Honestly, I have been back and forth with deliberating that now I am burnt out, I hear Mixed Reviews on the New Nehalem 2.26 GHz Mac Pro Octo. I have also come to believe that 8 Cores Benefit Video More Than Audio, the diagnosis being that 8 Cores Is Overkill for audio. Is Pro Tools A Multi-Threaded App. And What Mac Pro Would Be Best For Audio? Anyone?

    I think

    The one's i sell to customers that do tools have usually about 4gb ram and two 500gb drives for a regular quad are you running hd or le?
    The 8 core they have on the site for 3299.00 would be fine as well.

    Shoot me an email and i can give you the low down.
