I've asked questions on this forum before and you guys have been a big help but I still can't decide on what I want. But I have narrowed my options down to these two packages.

Package #1:

Imac 2.8 Ghz
500 Gb Hard Drive
4GB of ram (crucial)
Wireless mouse
External 1TB Hard Drive
NVidia 8800

Package #2:

Mac Pro 2.8 Ghz
Stock Hard Drive (I think it's a 320)
2GB Ram
Nvidia 8800 GT
Wireless Internet
HP 22" display (

My purpose for either machine is to do some photo editing and some home movie editing but the home movies will be in HD...I can't decide between the two...if you guys have any suggestions I would really appreciate it...and if you think I should get the 3.06 for the imac or the 8 core for the macpro please let me know...This will be my first mac and I want it to last a while...Thanks again for your help.

And probably has a better LCD panel. You need to spend maybe $500 + dollars on a 20" display to get one comparable to the 24" iMac and good for photo editing.

I would probably get the iMac.
