I have an early 2008, dual quad-core 2.8 GHz Mac Pro (stock ATI Radeon HD 2600 256 mb graphics card driving a 30" ACD and 19" NEC monitor) that I want to enrich a bit. It serves me very well but I recently acquired about $250 to put into it. I know an SSD would really speed it up, but I don't have the $$$ for an SSD drive because I have too many apps on my startup for an affordable SSD. I could conceivably: -increase the RAM from 8 gigs to 12 gigs and add possibly some more drive space -put in a better video card I don't have the $$ to do all of the above items. I use the CS5 suite, including InDesign, Photoshop, and now with the FCP issues I've started transitioning from FCT to Premier just as an excuse to learn Premier. Even though I edit video and edit in Photoshop, I'm far more of a multi-tasker than I am a super demanding power user (a few layers in Photoshop, single camera footage in FCP, etc.). I frequently am working in Windows 7 under Fusion, listening to iTunes, ripping DVDs or CDs, surfing the web, working on a layout, and encoding video all at the same time. For this reason, I'm wondering if the additional RAM would serve me better than an improved video card. I do recognize, though, that the proper video card will also assist in non-video processing, during periods of less demanding video. (Adding a second card would let me drive three monitors, which may be cool, but not huge on my list.) In short, I don't really _need_ anything but I want to put a little $$ in my Mac Pro and extend its useful life. And I'd like for whatever I do to make my computing experience feel enhanced. Thoughts?
