I also recently updated from an aging Mac Pro with 5770 to the top of the line iMac with 32GB memory, Fusion drive and GTX680 w/2GB and external Thunderbolt RAID - my performance is dramatically better with everything. FCPX runs great even with files larger than 1080p. The only things that are still sluggish are plug-ins such as Magic Bullet stuff that is obviously not optimized for FCPX (I love how Red Giant still blames Apple, yet most of my plug-ins run in real-time) Photoshop is now faster than my very fast PC.

I'm very happy with my purchase and now waiting on Apple to update the Thunderbolt Display to match the new iMac display.
