[Julian Bowman] "Figured that may be the case. Is it better with the i7? "

I'm afraid I don't know. I do have a friend with a decked out iMac + T-bolt Promise array and he's very happy with his experience. His machine is definitely more responsive with X, but I haven't done any direct comparisons with the same job in an iMac and a Mac Pro.

[Julian Bowman] "My timeline is 720p50 (I think that['s the correct term for it... basically 1240x720 at 50fps)."

That will be more taxing than other combinations and requires the fastest drive arrays. I tend to work on 1080p/23.98 projects and those are a bit less taxing overall.

[Julian Bowman] "Basically it is exhausting having to edit through treacle."

I would suggest a direct comparison with Premiere Pro CS6 on the same machine and see if it's more responsive. At least that will give you some idea if the machine is the issue.
