I've been the happy owner of a Mac Pro 1,1 since its release. Last year I installed a SSD as a boot drive and maxed out the RAM and I was very pleased with the performance boost. Earlier this week I took a break from working to answer a phone call and when I came back to my computer there were pink and green lines running vertically across both monitors. I restarted my computer and the lines persisted and the machine would not boot past the Apple logo. After a bit of research I've concluded that my video card has most likely failed. Considering most of the newest software releases don't officialy support this computer, I don't think it would be wise to put any more money into it. Also, today I secured a long term contract to produce frequent video content for a hunting/adventure website so it looks like a new machine is what I need. My Mac Pro has been serving me so well that I am pretty far removed from the details of the current line up so I am looking for some advice. A little bit about my needs: In recent years the bulk of my work has been still photography using a program called RPP for raw conversion and Photoshop CS6 for post processing (switching to CC next month). As a hobby I use Ableton Live 9 and various plug-ins for audio production. As I mentioned above, a large amount of my upcoming work will be video (compressed 1080p at the moment) using Adobe Premier and After Effects. As a Mac desktop user since the LCIII, my instinct is to buy the new Mac Pro, but I'm torn as to whether it is more than I require. The iMacs look more capable than they did last time I was shopping for a computer, and the 27" model looks nice, but is expandability an issue? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer me!
