I just got a PowerPc G5 2.0GHZ Dual Core with 4 Gigs of RAM. The only thing I'll be running is Pro Tools 7.4 (until I update from 10.4.11 to 10.5, then I'll load PT 8.0). I am currently using a PC 2.4 GHZ Single Intel Proc with 2Gigs of RAM. I really only run into problems when I get up to around 15-17 tracks with Plugins. I hear the G5 has more than the muscle to handle that (be a dedicated Pro Tools only machine). Anyone here using a non-Intel based G5PowerPC with Pro Tools and wouldn't mind telling me what you think? Pros and Cons. Thanks.
QUOTE Thanks
