I need some confirmation about this purchase. I have a 2008 2.8 Dual Quad with 8 gigs of ram and 1TB HDD. The guy also spend a little over $300 to upgrade the graphics to run with FCPX. I don't know the exact card though. He offered to sell for $650. I am coming from a borrowed Mac Pro 1,1 dual 3.0 4 gigs of ram and an XT1900. I do not own this computer. It is borrowed and having issues with the graphics card. I really only have about $650 to spend anyway. We have a 2009 i7 27" iMac at church to do HD video editing on. I'm satisfied with the performance of it for what we do. If the 2008 Mac Pro is similar in performance with the 2009 iMac I would be happy with that. I'm looking for something to get me through 2 years and then I will evaluate.
