I am investigating getting a mac tower, and need advice. I am leaning towards a used solution, and imagine a good solution would handle a Red Rocket no conflicts, and also have a fair amount of esata for lots of data pushing around. I am not going to be doing heavy editing, mainly looking for something that brings more to the table than a MBP.
in a previous post Deanan said:
"What we use:
mac pro 4,1
2.66ghz 4 core
nvidia 120 GT or 285 or a recent ATI (nvidia is needed for 4.5k)
Graphics card should have at least 512MB of memory."
so i am guessing 4 core is enough for what I am interested in? Seems these systems used aren't too expensive. I am mainly looking for something the redrocket plays nicely with and isn't too expensive. Thoughts?
