Now that I have that out of the way. I have been doing more and more visual effects and 4k+ editing (premiere, cinema 4d, nuke , after effects, resolve and obviously redcine x) and I am expecting a new Scarlet very soon. I am currently editing my first 4.5k music video for the web. Overkill... yes, but I believe that 4k+, like many of you great people on this forum, is right around the corner. I am trying to "iron out" all of slow downs in my workflow for the near future. I've ran in to numerous setbacks on my current macpro3, 1 (http://www.everymac.com/systems/appl...008-specs.html) with 8 GB of ram and a gfx 280. I need more ram, but the ram for my system is a lot more expensive then the current norm ddr3 and slower. So that brings me to my question.
After seeing the PCs that fellow red users (like Tom Lowe) are building they seem to have a significantly higher bang-for-your-buck factor. My budget is tight 2-3k (selling my current setup and adding cash) plus 3k-4k for a used redrocket. Would you suggest staying where I'm at and filling out my ram and adding a redrocket. Buying a new macpro or switching to PC and building a new monster?
