Tomorrow is the big purchase. Just a few last opinions. FCP 5 on g5 2.0 dual core vs 2.7 dual. Both have 4GB, 7800GT, 250 ATA. Any opinions?

Thanks,
Jason

Good luck.

My no1 thumbrule:
Always buy the biggest and baddest machine you can afford, that's the one which will serve you the longest.

Cheers!

If you are asking which is faster, the Dual 2.7. The thing to keep in mind is that the Dual-core machines have a different PCI bus, PCI-Express vs. PCI-X... so double check that and make sure you can get the expansion cards you want.

Thanks for the heads-up Mark!

The 2.7 machine is on its way! One thing though, the ATI 9650 graphics card seems a bit slower compared to a few other cards available, for a slightly higher price. Has anyone experienced challenges using this particular card w/ FCP5?
