Does anyone with an early 2008 Mac Pro have a solution for this with a newer Nvidia Graphics card installed? I was told recently by my Apple guy that the GeForce 8800GT graphics card is pretty much top of the line for the machine I have.
I work with a lot of HDV footage and some .mts files. I like to do music videos with a lot of variable speed edits. I like how the footage is playing in Premiere Pro CS5.5, even without the Mercury Playback Engine activated, but if I'm going to spend $850 on the Production Premieum, it would be nice to know if this feature is at all possible with and early 2008 Mac Pro.
Yes I have an early Mac Pro and you can see my specs below. The card helps accelerate certain tasks. Go to the link that Colin provided you for detailed info.
