    Hey guys, I need some help in deciding which of the new Imacs to get, I'm pretty much set on getting the 24 inch w/ upgrade of 3.06 cpu, 4 gig ram, 320 hd, but the question is whether to go for the nvidia card or ati?? I will be starting off most likely with final cut express but i wanna move on to pro real soon and use motion 3 etc. My question is, if i go with the ati card, will it be sufficient for use with motion graphics and other applications that require that type of graphic use?? or will i be better of with the nvidia, I' m really torn, please help!!!

    if you're doing video editing, you'll want alot of HD space... so if you think you'll have several projects at least, then I would consider upgrading the HD space. (or at least keep in mind that you'll almost definitely be spending $ on external HD's in the future). If I remember correctly, the rule of thumb was 1 GB per minute of uncompressed video.
