    please see my old thread here http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=131117

    and also, noone probably read that post because it has a bad title...

    Summary of thread:

    the difference in price between a dual 2.3 and dual 2.7 is 400 us dollars. Yet it is only a 400mhz difference. Do you guys think that would be worth it buying the dual 2.7? Is there any other atdvantages towards the dual 2.7 that i dont know about :
    I know about the front side bus is different and the video card is better.

    1$/MHz

    You are quite right:

    1800 MHz = 1500$ (this is single processor, the others are dual)
    2000 MHz = 2000$
    2300 MHz = 2500$
    2700 MHz = 3000$

    on average you pay about a dollar/MHz. clearly the low-end MHz's ($0,83/MHz) are cheaper than the high-end MHz's ($1,11/MHz).

    so the most economical choice is to buy the 2.3GHz model. You pay premium for top-performance.

    You must keep in mind that you have 2 processors in the PowerMac (except for the 1.8GHz) So in essence, you are paying $0.50/MHz.
