ok this is my second big red project and i am building a set up with the funds they are giving me for the equipment right now i have ordered
MacPro 8core with
10gb of ram (memory)
(1) 320gb hd
(3) 1tb hd for internal storage (all 32mb cache)
and the stock video card the ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256M
i have all the other things i would need
(2) 24inch montiors
the software i am using is
The question i'm coming to is the video card , my old mac has the same one and i have heard rumors that redcine uses alot of your memory card (maybe thats why it can't play full speed at higher qualities in redcine)
so i know they are ddr3 video cards in macs, would it make a big difference going up to a 512mb card or 1gb video card?
will it help the render and playback in redcine?
what would you suggest?
