[Gary Huff] "Frankly, a 2011 Mac Pro with dual 7870 Radeons running Mountain Lion/Mavericks would be the ideal upgrade for this kind of workflow ..."


Thanks for the suggestion. I'm wondering why you would recommend more graphics power.

I typically recommend "no upgrade" as the ideal.

Everything else has to justify itself in light of the workflow.

Considering that almost everything I've worked on the past decade has had it's own unique workflow, any upgrades are an open question right now (and it wasn't my system), but that set-up (above) worked just great for that workflow, and would do so again. I certainly wasn't ever waiting for graphics power. (Also note that I can't remember what MacPro it was exactly but it was purchased in spring 2012 if I recall correctly, and I think we used all the PCI slots; maybe one left empty).
