Yes, get a quad core i7 (i5 doesn't hyperthread), NVIDIA card with at leas 1GB of RAM & at least 16GB of system RAM (the most you can do in MBPr).

I have a maxed out Early 2013 MBPr with all that and a 512 gig SSD and I don't like running FCPX on it. It's just too inconsistent. Much more consistent on the iMac. I use SSD's through a Thunderbolt adapter so I'm getting great read/write speeds, but I'm disappointed in the FCPX experience on this machine.
