    Best hardware for Ae and 3D?

    Kat Gilbert Adobe Community Professional

      I have been a Mac user since day one. With the new MacPro the cost closest to what I "think" I need is around $7000 which is way out of my ballpark.

      I am looking at PC and could use some help in figuring what is the best. I am very involved with 3D and wish to expand into this arena. My current Mac is an '09 and seeing warning signs of problems. So I know I need to start the research now.


      My files in Ps are around 2GB which I move to Ae which handles them beautifully. ...Ps not so much and the lags and hangs are massive. Mac system is 2 x 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon with 22 GB of memory running OS X 10.9.4. Recently I am having problems with the Cintiq 24 not coming up on startup so this says video card or ??? something else is happening. Video card is nVidia Quadro 4000, GPU with total VRAM of 2048 MB. This is just to give you an idea of what I now.


      Any advice, where to go to research, anything would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
