I have the Mac Pro 1,1 - 2x3 GHz Dual-Core Xeon and I'm wondering if I would notice a better performance upgrading the computer. I do have the AJA Kona 2 for video output to HD screen but am willing to lose it for the nice 27" screen and a faster system.


I do a lot of editing with RED 2k, lots of After Effects work, and sometimes color grading.


Will I see better performance with the iMac i7? I've been waiting for a faster system tower but I'm not sure if Apple will design new ones. They may like to keep it small like the iMacs. It is space saving. Rendering is starting to feel old school.

Mac Pro 2X3.0, 13 gigs RAM, FCP 7.0.2, KonaAJA LHe, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
