I'm finally getting a decent machine to handle Aperture 3:

Intel i7-3820 4.67GHz Quad Core

32GBs DDR3 1333Mhz RAM

120GB SATA6GBp/s SSD (OS & Application Drive)

Nvidia GTS 450 1GB DDR3 Video Card

120GB SATA6GBp/s SSD Scratch Drive

3TB 7,200rpm 64MB Cache Hard Drive (backup & storage)

It will run OS Lion 10.7.5


Current machine is an early 2006 i mac core duo with 2GB of ram (lets not talk about that) 

Current workflow involves referenced masters (480GB worth)  stored on an external 500GB firewire drive, and the library (46GB) on the HD.

I keep a vault for the library, and back-up all the raw files to another external.

(my raw image files run about 25MB each)

With this new machine, I'll be moving from a Fiesta to a Ferrari, and I might need some driving lessons!

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Dino, San Francisco Bay Area

Aperture 3, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
