When is it worth the money to do the upgrade? Should I wait a while longer?

Opinions/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks
Scott

Even if you do not have a Nvidia card, I would say yes, it's worth the money. You get faster rendering and a solid 3d camera tracker,together with many new or improved features.

If you earn your living working with After Effects, I'd say a resounding yes – the most significant upgrade in years.

Like Ted, I don't have an nVidia card, yet the faster rendering, cacheing,3D tracker alone are worth it. I've rendered projects in literally half the time as CS5.5.

The disk cache speeds up workflow, I've put mine on a separate SSD.

MacPro 12 Core, 32 GB RAM.

I'll third the motion. The new caching system is a huge performance boost.
