I am debating wether to buy the new Apple Mac pro 6 core cpu or PC that is built that has these specs:
I am limited to these 2 options only.
I will be using the computer mainly for video editing and some 3d work(mainly title sequences using some 3d text and). Also i will be using AFter effects for special effects such as explosions and what not.
Im really confused and a newbie when it comes to specs needed on your comp to run after effects properly. Given the 2 options, New Apple mac pro or the PC with the specs listed above. What would be my best option? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I would suggest the X79 platform with the 4930K 6 Core CPU or better. If you get the Asrock Extreme 9 boards then the E5 V2 Xeons up to the 12 Core Xeons are available just like the nMPro. That becomes a major upgrade option later if your workflow changes. The workstation system would also push a 780GTX or 780TI card far better. I would suggest the 780Ti btw over the 780GTX. I would definitely suggest the PC over the nMPro for Adobe especially AE at this point unless you just require OSX.
