My Powermac G5 is getting a bit long in the tooth and I'm starting to consider an upgrade to a mac pro. My current system is a Dual core 2.0Ghz G5 w/ a 7800GT & 6GB of RAM. I primarily use it for Aperture and am starting to learn FCE4. I'm looking for a balance between performance and price so I think I'll be perfectly happy with the current line of Mac Pros (I won't need to get the Gainstown when it finally comes out). The only reason I'd want to wait for the Gainstown to come out is that I can hopefully get a better deal on the previous gen (the current ones now) Mac Pros. I know that the Macbook Pros saw heavy discounts on the previous gen Macbook Pros once the new ones came out. The other thing is that I'd like something that back compatible with all the stuff I have right now (ACD, firewire camcorder, etc.) and I fear that they're going to move the new Mac Pros to the Display Port technology and possibly eliminate FW400. Yes, I know that I can just get an adapter for those, but I'd prefer not to have to. Right now I've got my eye on the 2.8Ghz 8 core model, which I would upgrade the graphics card to the 8800GT and then buy after market RAM and move my current HDD over. The $2800 price tag is a little steep for me vs. the $2300 is more in my price range, but I don't want to make the mistake of saving the $500 now but then shortening the useful life of the machine. What are the chances that these current models will be discounted once (and will it be substantial) the new Mac Pros are finally released? Is there anything glaring that I'm missing in my logic here? Any other words or wisdom that anyone can offer? Thanks.
