    Can you give advise on my New Computer?


      My company is upgrading our edit systems:  This is basically what we are getting.  This is pretty much the limit.  Would you recommend any minor changes?


      Edit Software: Adobe CS6 Master Collection


      • Two 3.06GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon (12 cores)
      • 32GB (8x4GB)
      • 2TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive
      • ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB
      • One 18x SuperDrive
      • Dual-channel 4Gb Fibre Channel PCI Express card
      • Apple Magic Mouse
      • Country Kit
      • Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad (English) & User's Guide
      • Apple Care
      • iLife '11
      • Mac OSX Mountain Lion
      • NVIDIA Quadro 4000 by for Mac Graphics Board (by PNY 2GB)

      Fibre Connected to:

      Quantum StoreNext 220TB of storage space and will work with Mountain Lion OS10.8.


      The server is pretty far from my system. Longer than 200 feet, maybe more.


      Other Info:

      Edit Mostly DSLR Footage, Canons, XDCAM, Occasional Red Footage

      A lot of exporting using Media Encoder

      Huge Multi tasker with After Effects, PPro


      I do have a 30inch Apple Display monitor that I will need to keep, it is about 4 or 5 years old, would you decrease RAM or CPU in exchange for a new Apple display?


      Thanks for your time!
