I run a CS Pro with HT enabled and 2 gigs of RAM on PT 7 with a 002 and C|8. The CS Pro runs like a dream. I am able to max out my tracks and use a decent amount of plug-ins easily. However, resource hungry plugs like Guitar Rig-2 will drain most systems pretty easily, especially at higher sample rates. I often work in the 24-bit 44.1k or 48k if doing post work, comfortably.
I really think I need to upgrade to dual-core.
Ever checked out the Allenstein 'Quadzilla' machine over at the Digidesign User Conference?
I recommend 2-3 GB of RAM for your Mac Pro. Make sure to keep up on the cs updates and revisions for Pro Tools (so save your 002 documentation).Also, I recommend checking out Black Lion Audio for your 002. You will thank yourself.
