I'm a college student working in Communication and Digital Media. I do digital photo editing with Photoshop, very light if any video editing, lots of audio mixing/editing. I love surfing the internet, that's probably what I do the most! But I multitask like crazy and love having many windows open at the same time (who doesn't?!) And I'd like to play Madden and NBA Live as well. Ok, so I bought the smoking PowerMac Dual 2ghz G5 with 1GB RAM, 9600XT a few weeks ago. I got Photoshop, Audio Hijack Pro, Logic Express, Toast 7 Titanium, all the goodies. So what's wrong? What's wrong is that I need a TV-Tuner I can record shows on, Adobe Audition for mixing (I know I have Logic Express, but Audition is THE format in radio right now). And I spent $1,750 for it. The thing is, I'm having withdrawals from the PC!!! What's that about? I know I can buy an external TV-tuner card for the Mac and people say the Mac will last longer, I just don't know anymore. I was configuring a computer at newegg with these specs: COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel, SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail Model #: CAC-T05-UW $44.99 LITE-ON Black IDE DVD Burner Model SOHW-1693S Black OEM - OEM Model #: SOHW-1693S Black OEM $37.99 Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600JS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM Model #: WD1600JS $79.99 Microsoft Windows XP Media Center 2005 - OEM Model #: M93-00091 $124.95 SeaSonic S12-430 ATX12V 430W Power Supply - Retail Model #: S12-430 $99.00 GIGABYTE GV-RX80256D Radeon X800 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail Model #: GV-RX80256D $189.00 Hauppauge 1042 PCI Interface Win TV150 PVR-MCE Tuner Card for MCE - Retail Model #: 1042 $67.00 GeIL Value Series 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered System Memory Model GE1GB3200BSC - Retail Model #:GE1GB3200BSC $97.44 AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA3800BVBOX - Retail Model #:ADA3800BVBOX GIGABYTE GA-K8VT890-9 Socket 939 VIA K8T890 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail Model #:GA-K8VT890-9 $416.01 COMBINED FOR BOTH TOTAL $1,156.37 So I'd be saving $600 with that system if I put this Mac up on ebay, which in many opinions, is better than the PM Dual G5. So I guess I'm looking at your all's opinions. I know you love Macs (most of you) so try to be objective. Should I stay or should I go?? Thanks for reading this incredibly long post.
