Some background: -I've never owned a Mac desktop, having preferred mobile platform -I'll be dual booting Windows 7 64-bit -Primary apps include: Aperture 3 Photoshop 5 Logic Audio Reason 4 I'm going to be purchasing a Mac Pro within 2-3 months. I'm going the Mac Pro route so I can integrate storage into the tower without relying on external drives (I currently have about 3TB of Aperture libraries, my Logic libraries will still be in a separate chassis). The primary function will be a photo processing workstation, taking the place of both my 15" MacBook Pro and a Windows desktop that's getting too long in the tooth. Secondary function will be audio production using Logic and Reason 4. "Neato" function will be minor gaming (WoW, Steam games, under Mac or Win). My question is, should the 2.8 Quad be adequate to start? The plan would be to pop in a second processor down the road. Thoughts?
