Help with early 2009 mac pro upgrades?
- Member Since

I have a 2009 4.1 Mac Pro 2 x 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon with the stock NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB card, 32 mb of Ram I am running 10.11.6
I would like to know a few things.
I mostly do image editing, no video. Photoshop and Corel Painter
Is it worth it for me to flash to 5.1?
I also want to watch videos at 4k on a TV (not streaming). Do I need to upgrade the graphics card if so which one?
Will I need the 5.1 flash and upgrade OS to accommodate a newer graphics Card?
Finally I have considered upgrading processors to 12 core westmere. But i understand Photoshop can't really utilize multicore well so is this a waste? I mostly have no speed issues except for some lag in painter when it comes to the larger brushes.
