I need help deciding whether i should go out and drop 6,000 (more if need be I have a good deal of savings from my work and an arrangement with my dad) on a high spec mac pro now or wait till the nehalem based xeons come out for the mac pro. I need a computer to render complex 3d animations as well as videos as my work is expanding and my macbook pro takes far too long to carry out these tasks. And my dad is willing to fund my buying a high spec mac pro (on the condition that i make him 1000 photorealistic 3d models of diamond jewelry, a time limited offer though) So anyway what would u advise doing ? waiting for nehalem to come out on the mac pro or going out and buying one now? (i really dont wanna go out and buy something and then have it be outdated by a whole generation in less then 6 months) also what would u term to be decent specs for a mac pro to run HEAVY 3ds max renderings, final cut pro in hd video edditing, adobe after effects. and programs such as these? is a quadro video card really worth it (one of my friends told me it would make my renderings several times faster) ? and does anyone know if the next generation of mac pros will have a 5800 instead of a 5600 also i know noone knows for sure and there are some estimates around but do u guys thing a nehalem mac pro would be available by around june? (and would snow leopard be out by this point?) Thanks in advance, i did search for some answers but sorry if i repeated some questions that have already been answered by search.
