Hey, I am new to the forums and can't wait to see how this goes. Will upgrading my ram to 4gb, and adding an SSD make running Final Cut Pro X at all smoother? I used Final Cut Pro X with the current specs: 2GHZ C2D 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 32mb cache 2.5gb ram 667mhz ddr2 ATI X1600 128mb SD GDDR3 The only "Slow" part of running it was the fact that background rendering made it a bit laggy, but besides that I made several impressive videos with it. Any help is appreciated, Thanks, Austin Note: I do not want to buy a new Mac as of now, I actually just bought this iMac this year (yep call me crazy for buying an 06-07 iMac in 11). I will be selling this later for a Mac Pro, but need to upgrade within the next few months.
