I agree with the others, and would recommend waiting to make a decision until the new Mac Pro is actually released. You say "but I have to get something", but do you? Your current setup is stable and making you money right?

Another option is to buy a maxed out iMac now, then sell it if you end up wanting the new Mac Pro. Taking the financial hit as "worth the convenience" of having the fast new system in the meantime. Or just keep the iMac because it's already meeting your needs. It doesn't sound like you are actually in a "need to buy now" situation.

I've been teetering on the edge of the same situation for a while, feeling the strong pull of "gear acquisition syndrome", but am doing just fine with the good old 2008 MP and just buying more storage, recording media and other gear that will be just as useful regardless of new Mac Pro or not.
