    Help Building a new Mac Pro
    Hi I'm new to the forum. For the past few years I have been getting into video production and graphic design. I am planning to start a digital animation program in the fall. I need a much more powerful system than my macbook pro that I have been working on and I would like to buy a mac pro.
    My issue is that I'm not very familiar with system requirements and I don't even know where to start to figure out what I need to ensure that I end up with a system that can run all the software I use and not stall or slow down. Can anyone help? Here is a list of the main software I have now or plan to buy soon:

    Adobe Masters Collection CS4
    Nuke (may be buying)

    Thanks so much

    Any Mac Pro will do with your needs. Just buy whatever you can afford.

    Note that CS5 has just been released.

    If you don't need the Mac right now, then perhaps a small wait will gain you a more up to date system. It has been a long while since the current Mac Pros were released and the hopes/rumors are a new version is close to a release.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
