Hey folks, I'm a bit of a tech newbie, but am looking to get a new 27 inch and am hoping for some advice. I'd be using my iMac primarily to record vocals with Logic Pro (professional singer here!), as well as some music production, some video editing on Final Cut Pro, and photo editing on Photoshop. While I know that Macs aren't ideal for gaming, I'd want this iMac to be my all-in-one device for work as well as gaming, and I'd probably just run Windows Bootcamp on it to get all the latest big games running on my iMac. I might want to dabble into live streaming myself on video, or my gaming, as well. I'd probably tend to do some multitasking with a number of the above tasks I've mentioned, such as running Logic Pro while streaming videos, etc. I'd hope to use this iMac for as long as possible before upgrading again in the future, considering how it would be a pretty big investment. With all of that in mind, here's what I've come down to: I will probably want to get the Vega 48 for gaming purposes, and I am considering splurging on 2TB of SSD storage for peace of mind (I do have a lot of recording projects and would have a lot of games that would take up a good amount of space). I will also get an additional 32gb RAM off of Amazon, bringing the total RAM to 40gb. I can't decide between the i5 6 core and the i9 8 core. Being the newbie that I am, I'm not sure how the difference between the two would affect me. I've read somewhere that the i5 6 core might actually be a more efficient option, depending on what you need your iMac for, so I'm conflicted. Based on my usage detailed above, would the i9 8 core even be useful for me? Anyway, any advice based on my situation would be super appreciated. I'm learning a lot from this thread, so thanks very much to you all!
