I edit film with FCP and I have reached a point where I need a better computer. The Mac Pro I have now dates from 2006/2007 and is way to slow for my needs. The question now is: should I upgrade the computer I have or should I buy a new iMac or Mac Pro. I would appreciate any advice! I'm of course looking for the most cost effective solution.
This is what I have today:
2 x 2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon
2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM
Hard-disk: 232,44 GB
I might also have to upgrade my Final Cut Pro as it is as old as the computer: FCP 5.1.4 What would you recommend here?
I need a computer to edit film (possibly HD) and also a good way to do my back-up. My internet connection isn't very fast...
Thank you in advance!
