Please Help Setting Up New iMac
I want to upgrade my editing setup and want to purchase a new 27" iMac.
Please help me to configure it with keeping the costs as low as possible, upgrading only the essentials.
I was trying to keep the price in the $2200 range or less.
I'm planning on upgrading the RAM to 32gb from a 3rd party and saving a couple hundred dollars instead of ordering the RAM directly from Apple.
Any comments about what else I should do as far as upgrading the computer would be greatly appreciated.
Processor - Is upgrading to 3.5 ghz worth the extra money?
Storage- I think this is where I need the most help. If I remember correctly I was told to go with the Fusion drive instead of the ATA. Is that right? What should I do?
Graphics - Really worth the upgrade?
Thanks so much in advance!
