Same experience sorta. I've got two systems. Old 2006 MacPro with Radeon 5770, and iMac 27" i7 with Pegasus TB raid.

Both run FCP 7 the same pretty much. And at first glance, they both run X pretty much the same. Until you start trying to do actual projects. On the i7, the experience with multi cam and h264 is seamless. Plays back multiple streams in realtime and barely misses a beat with layers of h264 1080p24. Nothing stutters or stalls or crashes or even beach balls. It just works. This is since 10.0.4 mind you. AND it's with BlackMagic Intensity Extreme. With the Matrox hooked up and latest drivers on the Mac Pro, I'm still having audio issues I had with it on either system with 10.03. Static in the audio and crappy audio performance overall. But now it doesn't crash the system when scrubbing effects or give many beach balls.

I haven't used it with AJA. But with BM Intensity Extreme and an iMac i7, FCP X has been a great experience.
