Hey there ~ I am pretty close to pressing the order button on the 8 core basic model Mac Pro. I have a few questions...as this is our 1st Mac. We do video and animations and photoshop and illustrator and music and other things. Here goes the questions - and they may sound untechnical - that's because I'm not a technician - ha! So please- keep the answers simple...if possible. 1. I read that I should buy memory at OWC. Is that correct - and how much memory- are they just in sticks? 2. I also read to get drives at OWC. What kind of drive(s) are good for video? 3. And what about a video card? Does this depend on which software I use? Is the installed card any good? 4. And speaking of software, I had a filmmaker tell me to just use Imovie. But what about adobe premier or Final cut - I heard the FinalCutX is disappointing? 5. I'm sure there are more points I should consider...like backup storage and who knows what else? Any tips that will point me in the general direction would be much appreciated. I am trying to put all this together to make sense of it all without becoming a computer genius - I guess I need to dig in and research all the wiggle waggles, but I really wish I could just start using the tools to make the videos, etc. Thanks in advance!
