I bought my Mac Pro in April 2009, I love it... wouldn't trade it for anything. One of the upgrades I chose on Apple's store was the ATI Radeon HD 4870, I chose that card since the machine's been used for video production (editing uncompressed 1080/24p hi-definition). However, it still lags in FCP 6 and after about 10-12 seconds of playback the image will freeze but the audio will continue. The computer itself doesn't freeze but the video playback will. Is my card not up to the task? Should I track down an upgrade?
