Hi all, I work at a college and there's a bunch of base model 4-core 2009 Mac Pros for $400 (originally $700) in their equipment surplus sales. I'm wondering if I should bite. Currently using a 2006 Mac Pro to cut 1080p video and doing more and more After Effects and Adobe Creative Suite. The 1,1 has been flashed and I upgraded the processors to two 2.66Ghz quad-core Xeons along with 16gb of ram. I also use an nVidia 560 Ti video card, but apparently need to upgrade to Mavericks or Yosemite to enable CUDA (still running on Lion). My system is running okay for the moment, save for the occasional crash or kernel panic. But it is old and I'm going to finish up a project and have some downtime before I move to my next one. Should I pay the $400CDN for a 2009, do the firmware update (to a 5,1) and up the ram with the thought of upgrading the CPU, or stick with my 1,1 and be happy with it until it dies? This isn't a vital component of my livelihood, it's part of my artistic practice. Thanks.
