    Ok, My 1,1 is on it's way

    Decided on the X5355 2.66 Quad
    Gonna start with 16GB Ram
    Gonna get a HD5770 vid card
    Gonna run SSD's for system and audio/video drives

    I also plan to start on 10.7 EFI32, but will also run the boot to 64 hack for 10.8 on a separate drive till comfortable

    What can I expect for GeekBench Scores?

    I know there are people here running this/these config/s, and I'm curious to see what it will do.

    Please specify 32/64

    Thanx Amethyst ;)

    But it would be nice if there were full specs, like amount of ram, vid card, HDD's/SSD's......

    Still a point of reference tho...

    How much is all this going to cost? :eek:

    $544 RAM

    120GB SSD's $120 x 2

    Apple 5770 $200

    PCI ver. 1

    Plus the cost of the machine, and you have to hack the new OS on there..

    We're getting into 4,1 territory price wise

    Memory - 16GB (8x2GB) for $120 shipped NEW
    VID - SilentCell 5770 Flashed - $60 Local Cash - claims DVI Boot screen, we'll see
    Pair X5355 Quad 2.66's for 8 cores - $135 Shipped
    SSD's - 128GB and 256GB New unopened from Craigs, run TRIM Enabler - $200 for the pair
    640GB WD Dual Platter 7200's x2 (Already have)

    Machine $559
    'Mods' - $515

    $1074 investment for a machine that will make me $45/hr on local audio - $450/day on major label

    This will pay for itself in a hurry.

    Also, I can sell off the old vid card, memory, processors, 250gb hdd it comes with.... and that'll all probably bring me $100-150 back.... or just keep it all for spares

    And, the SSD's can come with to a new machine (SATA III 6G's), but I will likely just keep this joker around for a LONG time... even after an upgrade, as a spare.

    I've done major label projects recently on a G5 DP1.8 with 4GB RAM.... so I think this will replace it nicely ;)

    I do see what you are saying with costs of upgrades verses buying a newer 3,1 or 4,1 ..... but not in this config - I'd spend far far more for the newer model. I understand that I'm patching for 10.8 and that I won't bench what a newer model will, but this is going to work just fine for me for a few years, at a very minimal investment - respectively.

    Gotta love this forum, I've learned a lot about how to best utilize the 1,1 on here ;)

    thanx guys and gals ;)

    1074 Still not worth it IMHO..
