I bought my system for use with Final Cut Pro and Avid Xpress (going to start learning it). I opted for the 8800gt option despite some of what I read about it's core animation problems. Is Apple working on improving core image performance, or should I switch the card to the weaker ATI card? I will be doing light gaming on the system, but the main focus is Final Cut. Furthermore, are there any users on these boards who have the 8800 and can attest to the poor performance in Final Cut? Any positive experiences? Because even the Quadro Nvidia card was outperformed by the $2500 cheaper ATI 2600, I'm leaning towards just letting the order go through in hopes that Apple and Nvidia are working on the issue. While I'm taking up the valuable time of these boards with this question, these are the parts that I'm going to order tomorrow to accompany the system. Should I reconsider the harddrive? Would it be worth the extra money to order a second perpendicular recording drive to use as the main system drive? Ram: 4gb kit from OWC Harddrive: 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA II 7200RPM Thanks!
