    That's more than enough for running Final Cut Pro and the ATI 4850 is great for FCP.

    I would get Mac Pro because it's cheaper than your configuration but has more power and upgradeability.

    Yes I do, I was thinking about the Mac Pro, but I don't know what it was, but the iMac was just calling me LOLOL... So I made sure I max it out, I do alot of music production,and now I'm tapping into film production/editing. So I just wanted to know if I was safe, but the only thing that I didn't really know was about the graphics card.

    THANK YOU for letting me know that I'm good with the Graphic card I have.

    Your iMac will have no issues. I strongly suggest a fast hard drive however, such as a G-Raid drive.

    Yep you will be just dandy....

    Considering I edit AVCHD on a older 2.4ghz MBP with a 8600GT without any problems at all.
