I am thinking of replacing my 2006 mac pro 1,1 with a mini or a MB. I know going from a pro to mini seems odd but out of frustration I built a new PC this weekend so that I could play Starcraft II at 2560 x 1600 on high/ultra settings. My 2006 Pro w/ ATI 3870 was not cutting it even in Bootcamp. Did not want to deal with having 2 different cards in the box so I just built a dedicated game PC. I still would rather use a Mac for the day to day but for just general use the Pro is overkill, plus the thing is a furnace and easily raises temp in my office 10+ deg when it is left on. I am leaning toward selling the Pro for the mini or MB. I have the option of getting a mid 2009 2.26 mini for $550 or a new 2.4 for $699. Looking at performance graphs of the 2, for what I will use if for (surfing, netflix/hulu, some vmware, private web server) I think the 2.26 will be fine. I know the newer one has better graphics but I have a PC to play games. I have an extra 80gb SSD sitting around so I would probably install that as well as upgrade the memory. So is my thinking right on the 2009 being sufficient, use the extra $150 for more memory?
