Hello everyone, long time Macrumors lurker. I am a video production student, and I love video editing. This fall I am going to use the student discount to buy the 2.66GHz quad core Mac Pro. I am looking at editing HD video (AVCHD), on Final Cut Studio 2. Will this Mac Pro handle it? I am going to take the money I save from the student discount, and choose the ATi 4870 upgrade option. Is it known yet how much the 4870 will be used by OS X 10.6? Down the road I will eventually upgrade to 8GB of RAM. This will be my first "pro" product. I probably sell my 20" aluminum iMac and use as funding for an HD camcorder (as I have only been using Standard Def equipment).
