Mac System for Adobe AfterEffects.
I rarely ask tech questions (I normally try to solve everything myself) but since I want both Mac and Windows on the same system, I took the route to buy an official Mac route instead of going the Hackintosh route which has a good chance of running into a dead end, so if there are any clarifications needed, don't be hesitant to ask back. I am going to run AfterEffects CS 5.5. on a Mac however this is my first official Mac purchase as I got a Mac Copy of CS 5.5 Master Collection for a great rate. I have two paths to take:
1) Get a Refurbished MacPro 5.1 2012 - 3.2GHZ Intel Xeon (Quad) CPU, 32GB RAM, 2TB HDD, 1GB AMD/ATI Radeon 5770 GPU.
2) Get a New iMac MF 2014-2015 - 3.3GHZ Intel Core i5 (Quad) CPU, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 2GB AMD/ATI Radeon R9-M290 GPU.
I know I need to upgrade the MacPro GPU to 2GB at least, and get a new Monitor. However, on the other hand, I will need to upgrade the RAM on the iMac. Keyboard and Mouse is taken included with purchase in both cases. I have not seen any similar plans on a 24-48 hour search so I have to ask, thank you in advanced! I plan on making news graphics and other things on AE CS5.5.
