Which Spec for Final Cut Pro/Express Editing?
on Sep 27, 2012 at 8:23:45 pm

Currently we are using Final Cut Express to quickly churn out thousands of short 2D videos a year. It is time to upgrade/replace our towers and I would like your opinion on which you would prefer (similar cost) and why. We are also considering upgrading to FCP.

The question is whether to go with two slower processors and a traditional moving part drive for the software OR one faster processor and a solid state drive. However, any other suggestions/ideas are welcome.

OPTION ONE:

One 3.33GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon processor
16GB (4x4GB)
512GB solid-state drive
1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive
2TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive
Two ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB
One 18x SuperDrive

OPTION TWO:

Two 2.40GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon processors (12 cores)
16GB (8x2GB)
1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive
1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive
2TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive
Two ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB
One 18x SuperDrive
