Can I actually fix and upgrade my post G5 (2007) Mac Pro?
My specific model link with specifications above:
It is already upgraded with an 128GB SSD for the operating system, 2*(2*4GB) RAM on one of the 2 four slot DIMM trays as well as an ATI RADEON HD 5570 graphics card.
My computer is currently down because final cut pro X, logic and aperature used all of my remaining other (yellow bar of death) disk space in the background and thus I am now unable to load the OS and power my monitor.
I am thinking about having these components added to my build in the hopes to upgrade and fix my beloved film studio desktop without making a complete mess of it as well wasting all the money required for the build, hence why I ask? The shopping list:
1.) Fix, replace or get shop assistant to sort out the display
2.) Install samsung 850 evo SSD in 1 or 2 TB editions for the OS
3.) Add another 16GB of ram to the other DIMM = 32gb ram total
4.) Add another ATI RADEON HD 5770 to the PCI EXPRESS board to hopefully improve final cut pros graphic manipulation tools.
5.) Add 2 quad core 3.0 and perhaps higher intel xeon processors
In closing, I simply want to max tune and optimize this desktop to run final cut pro flawlessly and effortlessly without overstretching its limits/boundaries to the point that it doesnt work. Any tips, pointers, knowlege and experience shared is much appreciated and thank you for your time.
Is this a good question?
