For a Mac Pro, I suggest 4GB or more. But I'd wait first, until third party memory is available because Mac Pro memory is specific to that kind of machine.
Thanks! How much RAM makes sense at this point? I use Logic 8, VSL Instruments, Native Ins Kore 2 & Komplete 5, etc, etc
From what I'm haering the new 2.8 with lots RAM is the best bet....so is 32 GIG of RAM the way to go or can Logic and these other programs really "use" that much yet?
