I am having a hard time deciding which would be the best fit for me. There are so many different options and I'm not sure exactly just how one unit is better than the other. I hope someone can clarify things for me. I'm looking at 3 units:

1) Mac pro 2010 - Intel Xeon Quad Core: 2.8 GHz Memory: 3 GB MC560LL/A Hard Drive Capacity: 1.02 TB apple warranty to 2014 - $1700

2) Mac Pro 2.4 GHz x2 Intel Xeon Quad Core MC561LL/A Memory: 6 GB Mac OS X 10.7, Lion Hard Drive Capacity: 1.02 TB No warranty but many Adobe apps CS5, premiere pro
- $1675

3) Mac Pro Intel Quad 2.66 GHz Nehalem 2009 MB871LL/A - Memory: 3 GB 2 Internal HD's (640 & 500) 1 external HD 1TB - No warranty $760

**All prices are at current ebay price with 2-3 days to go on each.

I will mainly use them for Video editing FCP 7, photoshop 5 and after effects 5 (most likely not at the same time, as I'm just learning A.E.) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
