Fastest newer OSX for Mac Pro 3.1 other than 10.6

Hello there,

What newer OSX would you recommend for a Mac Pro 3.1 in terms of speed and performance while using Pro Tools, Logic X et cetera?

I thought there were speed improvements written in to El Capitan?

EDIT nevermind I thought you were looking at a new Mac not just the new OS haha.. My old roommate still has a mid-2010 Macbook Pro that seems to handle all the way up to El Capitan just like it did with the original 10.7 Lion it came with. Thats all you can get from Apple now so anything under you would have to find another way.. Just check your plugin/hardware/DAW compatibility and go as high as you can go.
