    Someone is selling the computer below for $1400.

    Is this fast enough to edit Final Cut PRO X?

    (Right now, I have a 2009 iMac - 3.06 Ghz iNtel Core 2 DUO w 16 gb and its just not fast enough)

    Will i see a big difference if i switch to this?


    Dual Quad 3.2 GHz Xeon processors
    16 Gb RAM
    Two NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT graphics cards - will support 4 monitors
    Two 1Tb hard drives

    As Final Cut Pro X can spread work over multiple processors, I'd say this would be an upgrade.

    Agree. But the first thing you'll wanna do is sell the two 8800GT cards and get a 680 card to replace them.
