    I’m considering using a Mac Pro to edit a web series with FCP X and am in need of some configuration advice. I would like the Mac Pro to be able to edit HD and 4K video.

    Using the following base Mac Pro specs, what upgrades do you suggest making that aren’t terribly expensive, which would future proof this computer?

    What monitor would you also recommend?

    3.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5 with 10MB of L3 cache
    Apple 12GB (three 4GB) of 1866MHz DDR3 ECC memory
    256GB PCIe-based flash storage
    Dual AMD FirePro D300 GPUs with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM each

    the ram and ssd is a relative easy self-upgrade. I am also looking for a mac pro, my configuration would be to find one that has the maxed out GPU with everything else base.

    Just my 2 cents.
