Hi I've been saving for quite a while waiting for apple to release these mac pros and now they finally have. Originally I was going to get the base model 2.8 mac pro and have saved accordingly. i was wondering if it is worth the upgrade in the long to upgrade to the octo even though it costs $700 more. i mainly will use the machine for final cut express (hope to get studio soon after) and I am starting to use photoshop more and more often. Either way I was planning to upgrade the ram to at least 8 (originally wanted 10 with old mac pro). I also don't want to pay $2500-3200 and have an imac outpower it in a year or two. so should I get the 2.66 quad or the 2.26 octo or possibly wait for the old 2.8s or 3.0s to hit the clearance section. Which one is best for longevity, speed, and price for what I am doing. any comments are helpful as every time I ask a friend which configuration to go with I end up changing my mind. I would like to hear from people that actually use the different mac pros to help me decide as I hope to do the same once I join this elite group. Thank you.
