Thank you in advance for suggestions/opinions. This forum has been of tremendous value to my development;
and thank you to all who take time to share your hard earned expertise.

As primarily a cameraman for the last 15 or so years, I am late to embrace the post end of things.
However, now that I have begun, there is no end in sight. (!) (Basically I do sports and documentary work for Japanese Network TV

If I answer your questions, can I have a vacation in Laguna Beach ?

you write -
MBP;
FCP 5.1.2, Beta SP (mostly), AJA IO La, 1.5 TB Sata Storage (G-Tech with Firmtek Card ; Back Up Fire Wire 800.)

REPLY - excellent equipment.

I am ready to start creating the home suite with the following :
*MAC PRO QUAD 3.0 :
1 x 250GB 7200 SATA as boot drive with all applications (FCP, AE, CS..3 etc.)

If I use the CAL DIGIT S2VR HD (with FASTA 4e Card )
Can I leave the other Drive bays open with no issues ??

REPLY - you will pull out your Firmtek SATA card, and replace it with the Cal-Digit FASTA-4e. You can plug in your Firmtek into 2 of the ports, and the S2VR into a 3rd port on the FASTA 4e. Cool, right ?


*4 GB Ram (4 x 1GB)
REPLY - good

*AJA Kona LHe (w/breakout box)
REPLY - good


*GRAPHICS CARD .
Do I need an upagrade card from the provided Nvidia Gforce 7300 GT ? (i.e ATI Radeon X1900 ?)
Will include AE 7 and CS3 when they become universal.
Do also use Motion for simple effects

Bob, thank you for your prompt and kind response.

As I prepare for these purchases, I'm waiting confirmation
from my Japanese client about next years Golf contract.
Once secured I will move forward with your vacation plans.... :)
Of course by the time you get here, I'm sure I will need you to come rescue me
from the big mess I will have made by then......
....leaving you with no vacation at all !!

Anyway, thank you again.
More to come.......

Happy New Year to All.

"REPLY - use your standard graphics card - it will work."

I'm looking at the same set-up with the ATI 1900. Is there any real value to upgrading the stock card? Or is that money better spent on the breakout box?

Thanks,

vince
