Hey all, I've determined I need a Mac Pro so now it's time to build it and I would love some opinions/help on the matter. This machine will be much more boring than what many of you have! Here's what I will be mainly using it for: lots of web use with streaming data for financial markets (Google Chrome with 25+ tabs, Firefox with 10 tabs or so), Word, Excel, Preview, Skype.. nothing too crazy for daily use. Also some gaming with Starcraft2 and eventually Diablo3. The main reason I need the Pro is for 3 monitors. CPU So for computing purposes, it sounds like I need a pretty basic Pro. Will one 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon Nehalem work for my needs? What's everyone suggest here? RAM I figure I would just get the base 3GB and then upgrade the RAM myself (you can do that easily with the Pro right?) I was thinking 8 or 12 GB total so I wouldn't have to upgrade later down the line. Graphics I'll be starting with 2 24" monitors but will eventually upgrade to 3 27" monitors in the near future. I would only need 1 graphics card with either setup, right? One ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB fits the bill here? Hard Drive My current setup has around 250GB of data that I'd transfer over. I also already have a 1TB external hd for back-up. So what do I put in the Mac Pro? SSD seems to have some great benefits but it's quite expensive. Can I buy an SSD from someone other than Apple and install it? This is the part I'm having a tough time deciding on. And then finally I only need 1 SuperDrive. Given that I don't need too complex of a Pro, I was thinking about going the refurb route, but I just wanted to check with everyone to see if my specs matched what I'd be using it for? Thanks for reading and any opinions are greatly appreciated!
