Hi there! I'm a freelance film maker and composer working in the Bay Area.
Good old-fashioned competition.

I feel like new purchases should definitely be PC, but I put a 980 TI in an old Mac 5,1 tower and it runs amazingly well, and it will accept the newer Nvidia card models also. So there's merit to retrofitting the older Mac's. Post houses are selling them for cheap all the time (how I got mine).
