At present I'm using an outdated iMac for my architecture studies. I use programs like Rhino, AutoCAD, ArchiCAD as well as all the Adobe CS4 programs. I plan on getting a mac pro that will last me a long time, hopefully well into actual work after graduation. So I'm guessing it should be good for programs like Maya as well. I was just wondering how I should go about configuring the Mac Pro for such purposes and superior performance. I read that the new Mac Pro was slower for photoshop work, but I don't want this to occur. Any help would be appreciated, because at the moment I am at a loss as to what to choose.
