I am finally ready to pull the trigger on ordering my nMP I am thinking; 6-core, 12GB RAM, 1TB PCI SSD, 2xD700 ...then upgrading the RAM via OWC to 64GB RAM. I already have a NAS, and I'm getting the Sonnet Echo Express to hold my 1TB Accelsior and my Sonnet TempoPro (2x512GB Samsung 940 Pro SSDs). Bootcamp is on a 1TB external TB Lacie SSD. OF COURSE I AM CONFUSED It has taken me a long time to get to this point, and the biggest question has been what CPU to choose I use my MP for photography and video; Adobe CC, PhotoMatix, Aperture and so forth. Oh, and games in BootCamp... Should I get the 6-core or the 8-core? And now to my question; - Will there be a CPU upgrade in perhaps 12-24 months that would significantly boost the performance of this system (in which case I will get the 6-core now), or not (in which case I will get the 8-core now)?
