http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/500630), same machine he got a 24.7 Cinebench 1.5 CPU test. Says its a MacPro -- its not. 'Tutor' built a SR-2 hackintosh (with 2x 5680s). Proper fully-spec'd MacPros score Geekbench x64 @~25,000. But again, doing something like that is an entusiast concoction, not for the "something went wrong, time to go to the Genius Bar" type of person, as no one will support it outside of the guy that built it (you).

Wow Jon, you said it... That's right, that SR-2, she's the one for me... But as of my current rig, yes it's a CPU bottleneck when rendering AE compositions, but in PP my CPU only runs at around 70%, it is def. my graphics processor in that respect. I can render HDRx with my current config in PP with no problem whatsoever, but if I want any additional AE renders added in, then I am maxed out. BTW... I read my current post, and I wasn't trying to be critical with wedding videographers, besides, I have done weddings, and it's fun. I was just showing that in order to move forward in life a person just has to set his or her sights on the stars.... That way if you miss, at least you will hit the moon. :)
As for the RED ROCKET, I really have no idea about it, I haven't done much research. I only have info on what I have personal experience with. I would like to know more about it though, maybe I can save some money instead of buying a second Nvidia Quadro 6000.
My observation that his CPU was his bottleneck was with his current build. Sorry for not thoroughly reading the post correctly -- and thanks for the welcome! I'm excited to delve in.
The main reason is money ;)
However, I've seen a few video card tests that would suggest the difference is not as big of an advantage as the price justifies. In fact, some of these tests had the quadros not crack the top 10. I'll look for the link and I'll post it if I find it. Of course, these were only measuring speed, so maybe the Quadros are better at video post, but I also feel that today's pc's have enough power to bypass expensive video-only hardware. Anyone else have a GeForce?
