$800 is a lot of money to spend if the numbers don't justify the price. I much rather spend that money on another 23" ACD or upgrade to a 30" or RAM.... whatever. Point is that I'd like to know if one can reasonably justify that money is better spent on the processors or other upgrades.... Oh yeah... I might add that I spend time a lot of time in CS2, FCP, and Macromedia, looking for overall performance but mainly the best bang for my buck. Please, I'm open to all comments and suggestions.
