Hello, I'm new here. I've never owned a Mac or any Apple product for that matter. I've always had Dell PC's just because, well, I don't know. But I'm creating an audio/visual studio at home for music and professional level high-def video editing (hd camcorder is the new Sony XD CAM EX) and I know Mac's are the way to go for high-end graphics stuff. I will be running Final Cut Studio, Logic Pro, and Adobe CS3 Photoshop. I want a high-end mac pro. I've been waiting for this update so I'm excited about it. I know nothing of Mac's and I'm not very hardware savvy. I have budgeted up to $16,000 for the machine alone (this is a business investment, not a hobby). Please help me build my machine. What would you choose? Items I know I want are the best/fastest chips (two 3.2's) and two 30" monitors. I don't know about video cards... is the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 worth the extra $2,650 over the NVIDIA GeForce 8800? If so, is that a decent price or should I upgrade that from another supplier? Seeing the price of Apple's RAM I get worried about getting reamed by upgrades. How much RAM should I buy with the Mac Pro from Apple and where should I get the extra RAM I want... I'd like at least 16 GB. How about the RAID card and/or the Fibre Channel card? I'm not sure the best hardrive storage options to use. Locally there's a Guitar Center store that sells Mac's... is there a benefit by ordering the same configuration through them, or going directly through the Apple Store? As you can see, I have a lot to learn on the hardware side. I can produce marketable images and video, I just need to learn the technical editing side much better. Thank you for any suggestions!
