So after reading a lot of threads here and with my birthday coming up next week, I've decided to get the 2010 mac pro with: 3.2ghz quad core 1TB hard drive ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB 12gb owc ram (4gb x 3) 120gb ssd (owc) Monitor (can anyone recommend a good led backlit monitor? can't pay more than $400). Does that sound good? I'll be adding more hard drives later. Does anyone know how loud/quiet it will run? I mostly work at night (sadly) so need my comps to be fairly quiet to be able to concentrate. Also, should I get apple care now or after 3 months? I will be ordering this next week, unless there's an upcoming update soon. I just checked the buyers guide and it says there should be an update in about 2.5 months, but from what I've read here most ppl are suggesting a late 2011/early 2012 update. So a bit confused... if there's an update in 2.5 months then I'd definitely wait. Thanks for your help!
