I don't debate your words on the mac pro, but I do debate the wisdom of this purchase overall. The OP has a 2007 era lower end box. He now thinks a mac pro is a requirement. A mini with 16GB of ram would fly for this stuff. My notebook (not my only machine) is specced comparably. I'm typing from it right now. For the absolute vast majority of that stuff, it flies. The OP is just so low on ram that he's probably hitting scratch disks constantly. He thinks it's something...
