Default Old TDM or new LE?

I've got a Mix+ system on a Mac G4 which I use for post production.
I'm considering moving to a 003 Factory with DV toolkit.

I know this is a "how long is a piece of string" question, but ...
If the I use an up-to-date mobo, dual core processor, and a couple of gig of ram, which would be more powerful system?

Default Re: Old TDM or new LE?

No reason not to go with a quad core setup these days and I bet the the newer LE system will sound as good or maybe better due to improvements in converters. I have no imperical evidence to support this. Remember that the newer versions of PT (7.0 and up) have lots more features than the older 6.4 version(the latest you can run with a Mix+ system). Of course, there is the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mindset.......

The better I drink...the more I mix.....
