    G5 Upgrade or Protools HD ?

    Ok here is my situation .

    1. I just recently came across a problem in my (dual 867 ) G4 mac computer ,running protools LE 4.6. ( digi 001 )
    My problem is that after like 25 tracks of audio my computer simply isn't powerful enough to continue without giving me error messages like this one ( Go into playback engion and increase buffer size )
    despite trying this ,my computer simply just runs out of juice to keep working without this problem occuring .

    2. So doing some research i have 2 options

    A. Buy a new G5 and upgrade to protools digi002 ( because G5 is no longer supporting digi 001's

    or
    B. Go HD protools because then I would be able to still use my present G4 .


    What would you suggest doing ? Help please

    utilizing all the power of protools really would mean getting the full _hardware_ version of protools. of course thats quite a few extra bucks to spend.
    Are you sure you want to stay with protools?
    You might be happy with logic on a G5.
