First you need 16GB Ram
Then a GPU. I have a 2009-MP with a 4870 card and a 2011 McBookPro and the MacBook is much better for FCPX and has Thunderbolt. New MBooks have USB3 also. If you don't need the MacPro for Pci cards I would go for Macbook or iMac, before you put money into an old box.
I will soon sell my MacPro to someone who needs a server and will upgrade to an iMac or MacPro2013.

Going to PrePro and or Windows is a totally different decision!
