I am looking into a new cmputer. I am wondering what I should I prioritize if I am looking for high performance in motiongraphics/colorcorrection/video work. I want to use Apple application as well as Adobe creative suite.  I like the sound of a 3.2 Ghz processesor but is that more important than RAM? what about video card? I am trying to understand which component accounts for fast performance most.


Thank you




MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), 4 gb Memory

    Most powerful video card you can get.

    As much RAM as you can get.

    Fastest hard drives you can get, one system drive, one media drive.

    T'bolt I/O device with HD-SDI out and a professional broadcast monitor, or you won't be doing any real color grading.


    It's all equally important.
