    New iMac 27 - GTX 680MX

    Cate95

      Hi everybody.

       

      I'm currently using my gaming PC for doing video editing, photo editing and audio editing as well. I recently sold my iMac 20" from 2008 to buy the Windows based computer, but it isn't made for me,

      I'm so used to OS X enviroment that I'm going back to Mac OS with the new 27" iMac.

      My PC has awesome components like:

      i7 3770K

      GTX 680 made by Gigabyte (OC version)

      16GB DDR3 1866MHz RAM

       

      Like I said before, I'm switching (back) to Mac, but I'm uncertain about the possible upgrade I could do!

      I'm planning to buy the 27" iMac, top-end with the Fusion Drive but I also want to add something more and I'm considering to upgrade the graphic card.

      Is the GTX 680MX a good upgrade? Should I upgrade the graphic card or the CPU, getting the i7 at 3.4GHz (it's the 3770 model)?

       

      My camera is a Canon EOS 550D (a classic).

       

      I "work" (I do it for hobby, I'm still studing) with Photoshop, Premiere, Lightroom and I'll give a try for sure to FCP X (Sorry Adobe, nothing wrong with you).

      And I'm also going to use programs like Logic and Ableton for my music projects and recordings.

       

      Thank you very much.

       

      Nicola
