which build for FCP video editing

Option 1
Mac Pro
3.5 GHz 6 core, 32gb ram, 256gb flash, G tech 6TB G-Raid 2HD system, dual amd firepro D700, apple thunderbolt display, = $7000 CAN
or
Option 2
Imac 5k retina
4Ghz quad core i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB fusion, Promise pegasus r4 8tb (4 by 2TB) thunderbolt 2 RAID system, AMD Radeon 4GB = $5200 CAN

This computer will be used almost entirely for video editing. I am not working with 4k footage right now but would like the option to in the future. Any opinions on which build I should go with? I guess the real question would be is the amount of power I would gain with the mac pro worth spending an extra $2000 and losing that stunning 5k display...

Which version of FCP? If FCX, you should ask that in the FCX forum, as this is for us legacy holdouts.

If for FCP 7...neither, as both ship with Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite, which doesn't support FCP 7...now 4 years End of Life.
