I am about to pull the trigger on a Scarlet purchase. It's gonna take everything I can right now to make that purchase happen, so I'm hesitant to do much else (financially right now). Will my computer even handle it or will it suck so bad it's not worth it?
Could I get by using Premiere 5.5 with this computer configuration? (10 year FCP user )
I would prefer to wait for a new Thunderbolt equipped machine and get the latest architecture later. But..........if there was one or two things that I could do to this machine to make it actually work well......what would they be? If not, then I would like to know that too. Thanks in advance!
This is my machine:
Mac Pro Early 2008
Processor: 2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Memory: 10 GB 800 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4870 512 MB
Software: Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74)
Blackmagic Intensity Card
Seagate Cheetah SATA drives (additional internal)
G Tech (basic-non RAID ) external
