I am looking to replace my G5 Mac and need some advice on what would best suit my needs. I will be working on editing streaming video for the web and mobile devices as well as broadcast quality commercials and some documentary work. There is so much out there that I am feeling a little overwhelmed so I thought I would seek some suggestions from you all out there.
The media formats I am thinking of working in are broadcast tv, digital films and commericals for tv. I plan on working with Premiere Pro or FCP X as well as After Effects and Photoshop. I don't have the G5 anymore ( not for around 4yrs.). I would like to stay under $5000 for everything. As far as peripherals goes I'm not sure and am looking for suggestions. I am thinking probably two monitors and something for storage.
