I have just purchased a new mac pro- 8core 64gb of RAM, and D700 graphics cards. I say I'm not getting full optimized performance because my machine will not playback 4k footage at full resolution. Should it? I looked into the package contents of Premiere Pro and notive that the D700 graphics cards were not listed under supported cards. If I type those in will that fix the issue?

No it wont. No editing software out right now will play back 4K media such as Red at full resolution. The latency for processing the codecs is just to high right now. Redcine X Pro can with Red if you have the GPU accelerated Debayering version. Until that decoding is done on the GPU's in the editing applications, you wont see the full res playback most likely. I wouldn't expect the Red Debayering done at the GPU's in Adobe for a while since Red is still refining it.
