Thanks to all on the forum whose advice helped me plump for a Quad Pro 2.93, Radeon 4870, 6GB Memory. The one thing I hesitated on was the display. I can't run to the 30" (I find it too big anyway) and I'm not totally convinced about the 24" as I'm not certain the supplied cord is long enough for my needs. I could work around that at a push so I won't rule it out totally but there might be another option... I've found a local reseller who has two new 20" cinema display screens in the stockroom. Matte I believe - which I'm used to with my old G4 iMac - and they're selling them for £391 each ($642) as compared to £635 ($1042) for the new 24" displays. Bearing in mind my severe technical limitations - and please don't underestimate my failings - my question is, would you go for one of them? Would the 20" work perfectly with my new set up and graphics card? I think I'll have to move on this pretty quickly so answers would be appreciated as swiftly as possible. Thanks chaps. PS They also have an ex-display 20" but I don't think I've got a strong enough nerve to take the risk and ask the price. I wonder what they'd take though?
