1 extreme PAK or 2 other cards


New Member
I got a new mac pro and want all the uad plugins.Is it better to buy 1 extreme pak( which would have all the plugins) or say buy 2 of the other cards and then add the additional plugins to distribute the cpu power over 2 cards?
That way i would have 2 cards with all the plugins.Would this be a more powerfull setup instead of trying to process all the information over 1 card?
I would personally go for two cards, even if that means less plug-ins right away... a single card is simply not enough considering the new resource-heavy plug-ins like the Neve series.

If you want to buy all the plugins anyway, it could be cheaper to buy the Extreme Pak first. It includes quite some plugins you otherwise would need to buy extra. So you can try all the stuff and then buy an Express Pak later to increase processing power. Just calculate and see what's more cheap!
