Question Imac Intel or Mac Pro and Digi 002r or ?? Help me get system

Hello, I need some help. I currently have an outdated digi 001 with g4 400mhz. I am upgrading my whole project studio. My dilemma is, do I spend the extra and get a Mac Pro or does the Digi 002r work well with the Intel Macs.

I usually need all 32 tracks and I would definitely like to use a lot of plugins. The Intel Imacs on paper look powerful, but my experience with older Imacs is slow bus speeds etc.... How are these ones working out?

Plus - will the Intel Imacs be useful 2 years from now when something better (digi next release) comes along. I can only afford a computer every 5 or so years so this is it, but the Mac Pro seems seems like overkill and I could use the extra cash to buy better studio toys (converters/mics etc...).

Thanks.....
