I am ready to dive into the deep end and purchase a Mac Pro for my creative business. Just to clarify; I do not want an iMac, MBP or Mac mini. I am looking to consolidate 2 PCs into one Mac Pro to do everything I need. I have read all the reviews which have actually created more confusion now then before over the hexacore, 8core and 12 etc. I need your professional opinions so I can order and move on. What I usually run at the same time (typical workflow) InDesign CS5: 65+ pages for magazines linked to various ai, ps, and photos Illustrator CS5: 4-5 vector images typically open at once Photoshop CS5: 4-5 images typically open at once, some RAW/high res, photo touching Bridge CS5: for file tagging, keywords and organizing Chrome: typically 15 tabs open, downloading large attachements Firefox: typically 15 tabs open as well, downloading large attachements Tweetdeck: tons social of updates Other Adobe Air Apps: typically 3 running during this process Music: music typically playing 75% of my day WordPress Local Test Server: Currently use Wamp to run a local wordpress install 65% of the time, this could very well be in a VM Burning: CD/DVDs while working On top of the above I would also like to run a series of Virtual Machines VMware Fusion running Windows 7 64bit Pro which will also run Quickbooks 2010, Office 2007 - this will be on 75% of the time Possibly Windows XP for some older programs that don't run in Win7 Ubuntu - for fun, testing purposes - running 10% of the time Occasional video and audio processing but nothing advanced, also I dabble in After Effects if that helps. Also I have 1 24" HP LP2475w and I am looking to add a second one, along with 1 19".... does the bigger video card option make a difference for me? I am currently looking at: OWC's 24gig RAM kit - for multitasking and Adobe RAM hogging http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Other World Computing/85MP3W4M24GK/ 8core 2.4 Mac Pro ? Should this be different? 4TB HDDs Not sure on the video card needs to run 2x24" monitors and a 19" I realize there are a lot of posts like this so thank you in advance for commenting on my situation.
