please refer me to an existing thread, if this topic has been discussed.
I currently work on early 2008 MP 2,8Ghz 8-Core with 10GB RAM. The system runs fine, but with LR 4.3. i found my
system to become as little sluggish. I almost only work with LR, import, edit, colour adjust and export about 100-200 pictures per
day. (5DMKIII and X Pro1)
But here's the problem:
Should I add more RAM (8GB ħEUR 200.-), an SSD Bootdrive (250GB ħEUR 200.-) and strip two HD to a RAID 0. (4TB ħEUR 200.-)
(All of that would cost me ca. EUR 600)
Is the upgrade going to change LRs performance, since everything but the CPU will be better?
or should I opt for a new Mac?
or in other words: Would you pump 600 bucks into a 5-year-old maschine without thunderbolt or usb 3, but still a benchmark of 10000.
Gratefull for any advice!
