Hey im new to the forum and I really need to upgrade my computer. Right now I am using an older eMac G4 1.0 ghz 60GB and I have used that for mainly video/photo editing. Basically the computer is so slow and so messed up at this point that I cant even use it for video stuff right now, and running final cut pro on it freezes a lot and is really really slow. Its definately time to replace this comp with something else but I dont know what. I do a lot of editing, and im going to be doing even more editing coming up as a part of the video business that I am doing. I really want to get a really nice set up, and I was going to get the G5 with problably 2 20" screens until i found out about this intel stuff. Now I would feel like an idiot going out and buying one but after reading some things online I have heard that the new version of the G5 wont come out until august, and I have tons of projects that I am being paid to do between then and now that I will not be able to do on my eMac. Also from what I have been reading about the intels on this site is it seems you are having a lot of trouble with them and I think that I would be better off waiting on it because of how much bad stuff im hearing. With the G5, I was thinking of doing the 2.3 ghz procesor with 2 gb of ram, 500gb hard drive, and I dont really know too much about the graphics cards, but I want to run 2 20" screens, so do I need to upgrade the graphics card? I would like to keep this as low as possible but still able to run the final cut pro 5, soundtrack pro, dvd studio pro, motion photoshop and livetype without problems. This ends up really really expensive though. Or what about the macbook pro 2.16 ghz? I could get that with 2 gb ram and then I think that I would want the 7200 rpm drive vs. the 5400 rpm drive so then 100 gb hard drive. Then I would want the 20" screen but my question is can I run the two screens together, using some windows on one screen the rest on the other? Then I would definately need more than 100 gb so what are my options for more space? I have a maxador hooked up to my eMac that I cannot use as a capture scratch drive on final cut pro, is there a different external hard drive that I could use as a capture scratch? This may be the better computer and it would also be cheaper, but what do the owners of the powermacs think? I have also been hearing a lot of problems on the site with them, should I be concerned or not? Any help would be awesome. I know I have a lot of questions.
