[Bill Davis] "Somebody needs a monster CPU for some reason? Hang one on the system and let any program that needs it use it."

Perhaps FCPX is different in it's architecture but the Adobe programs rely heavily on CPU power to maximize efficiency. A kickass GPU is great to have but if your CPU doesn't match the power of the GPU it's not making the most of the technology.

Also, if an add-on GPU is sharing bandwidth with a Thunderbolt raid/drive and also potentially a monitor is that a limiting factor in it's overall performance?
