    Getting a refurbished Mac Pro 5,1 for Media Composer

    Hi,

    we are about to upgrade our Media Composer system to a refurbished Mac Pro 5,1 Westmere. Could someone give advice what CPU and GPU to choose in order to get good performance? Mostly we work with linked XAVC-I clips in 1080p, but sometimes we have to manage UHD and 4K on small projects.

    Should we rather get a faster CPU or a faster GPU for the money?

    Possibilities the have been offered by one seller are:

    CPU
    6 core 3,33 GHz
    12 core 2,93 GHz
    12 core 3,33 GHz

    GPU
    GTX 680
    GTX 780
    GTX 980 TI
    GTX 1080

    I know most of these are not officially supported, but I heard many editors use unsupported Macs without any trouble. True?

    Regards,

    Tom
