One of our G5s died and I need to find a replacement. I know that an upgrade should be coming soon, but we need a replacement now (and besides, I just went through that heartache with the MBP and I don't think I can take it again). We tend to use applications that analyze a large number of events (FlowJo and Genespring, for those in the know). There will likely be some Photoshop usage, but not a lot. I don't think that an upgraded graphics card would be beneficial, correct? The just to an 8 core machine is pretty pricey. Is it likely to be worth it for us? I imagine that it might speed up FlowJo, but I don't use Genespring so I don't know whether it would benefit. Thanks for the advice.
