Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen, This is my first post here, but I have been lurking around for a while. (I get bored and like to read the forums from time to time) I decided to step up my video editing and 3D Modeling/FX editing. I have been using mt 6-core PC for a while but it's not cutting it (as you would obviously think). I am looking at getting the following: # One 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon Nehalem # 6GB (3x2GB) # 1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive # Two ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB # One 18x SuperDrive # Apple LED Cinema Display (27" flat panel) # Apple Magic Mouse + Magic Trackpad # Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad I was going to ask you all suggestions if I would need anything like this or if there is another set up that might work well for me for now. I usually upgrade every 2-3 years. (Verging more on 2 now) I would love the input. If the above set up was not good enough, I was thinking about uping to the 8-Core, but I do not know yet. Thanks for all the fun times.
