I'm trying to decide between two quad core machines, either the 2009 2.93ghz or the 2010 2.8ghz Mac Pro. The machines are very close in price and specs. The 2.93 has 6gb ram, Radeon 4870 graphics card and a 1TB drive. The 2010 2.8 has 3gb ram, Radeon 5770 graphics card and a 1TB drive. The price between the two is $6!!!!!! $2332 (2009) vs $2338 (2010) I will have to purchase ram for the 2010 right off, adding about $150 to the cost of that machine. From all that I have read, the video cards are pretty comparable, though, my feeling is that the 4870 may be slightly more robust (I could be mistaken). The 2010 model does give me the option to purchase a 6 core cpu down the road (which I don't foresee doing). I cannot spend any more money, otherwise I would consider the BTO option in the Apple Store and get the 2010 3.33 4 core. Is this a toss up, or is there a "clear" winner in your opinion? Thanks so much for your help!
