    Post 9800 Pro 128MB for the G5?
    I'm seriously thinking about getting a Dual 2GHz PowerPC G5 with 2GB of memory, mainly for Final Cut Pro and other media software like Photoshop and Director.

    I was wondering if it's worth paying the extra 229.99 to upgrade from the Radeon 9600 Pro 64MB to the 9800 Pro 128MB for the G5? will there be a performance difference?

    Also, what is a fibre channel PCI card?

    It'll make things like faster render times and just an overall more responsive program.

    If you need access to a RAID server you'll need the PCI card.

    Fibre channel is hugely expensive at this point.

    Basically it allows you to connect a seperate array of drives, in another piece of hardware, to your machine, with a speed so fast that you most likely won't know it is another machine that houses the drives. Something similiar to what you see here : Of course they aren't always that elegant, but you get the idea.

    Probably cost prohibitive at this point
