Hey everyone I'm new and have a few questions that maybe you guys can help me with. First off just to let everyone know I've never owned a mac until now. I decided to switch over so I ordered a new 2.8 Octo with statard configuration except for adding the 8800gt. So on with the question. 1. What software if any is a must have purchase for the mac? 2. How long does it normally take to receive your shipments from apple? I placed my order yesturday and I live about 4 or 5 hours from the distribution center in orange county. 3. If I install Vista for the gaming side of things will vista recongnize and use all 8 cores? 4. If I do decide to install Vista can I have two seperate raid 0 arrays? I currently have two 250 gb drives and I'm going to order another 320 Gb drive. 5. I also want to order another 2 gb of ram any suggestions?? Thanks in advance.
