I was basing my statement on the geekbench processor benchmanrk. I guess you can go higher by overclocking.

My current rig scores above 11000. Not too bad for a 6y old machine. I will personnally not upgrade on performance grounds unless I can at least double them, which is not yet the case in MacPros at a price affordable to me. Nice to see there are way more affordable options...
