Hi there. I do most of my work in Photoshop, Illustrator, with some Flash and Dreamweaver, and I will be taking up After Effects and, eventually, Final Cut. It's all web and video graphics work. Just a little bit of print. My Photoshop files are routinely from 500MB up to about 1.5Gigs in size and I often have several open at once. Sometimes I have to open or batch change PNG sequences that are hundreds of images. Finally, I need at least 1TB of local storage. I have a budget of around $5000 (flexible) for a new Mac Pro tower (I already have the displays and peripherals covered). I know new ones are coming out soon, but where would you spend the money if you were me? I'd like to keep this as a workhorse for 4-5 years or longer. I'm cool with spending a few hundred on it each year to keep it up to date. Do I go for fastest processor up front or save that and put in more RAM? Is an SSD a good idea? Should I have 2 Hds? More? What's the deal with RAID and should I do it? What about graphics card? Thanks so much if you can help me. My expertise has only been with the software side of things.
