I remember reading some threads few months ago about how the new 2009 2.26GHz 8 core was faster than the 2008 3.2GHz 8 core (in some apps). I wasn't too fussed as I don't use my current Mac Pro to it's full capabilities but now I am thinking of upgrading. Here's why; I want to get the new 24" ACD and to use it with my current Mac Pro. I'd need to buy an ATi 4870 to go with it. That's a total cost of ~ £780 using the edu store. I can get the new 2.26GHz 8 core with 12GB RAM, ATi 4870 and 24" ACD for ~ £3000 using the edu store. I *should* be able to sell my current 3.2GHz 8 core for ~£2200 which would mean I pretty much break even (unless I upgrade the HD's). My question is would it be worth the hassle? Has anyone else made this move and never looked back/regretted it? Any help would be appricated.
