I was in the boat with the same spec Mac minus the drive setup and ATI card. Which was fine for Final Cut.

Shoot 1080 on Sony-HXR2000u and was having the same issues with Premiere CS5.5. I download the trial first on OSX and Win7 Boot Camp. I ran smooth in Win7 but not OSX. I since FCX was not working for me.
So I built a PC for just to try it out.

Win7 Pro
i5 OCSandy
500GB Main Drive
1TB RAID0 Scratch Drive
3TB eSata RAID1 Storage
Nvidia 550Ti

and it ran circles around the Mac for $800.
For benchmark purposes I loaded the first PP an AE project that I did on the PC that took 1.5hrs to render out. I loaded it on the Mac and it took 6.3hrs.

I ended up selling the Mac for almost what I paid for it with the extra cash bought another Sony Cam, Shuttle pro2,3D SpacePilot, new audio mixer and Production Premium CS5.5.

I would try running Win7+PP in boot camp first to see if it does the same thing.
