    so after years of wanting one but feeling the switch would be to much i have switched to mac full time, mainly to stop myself playing games & be more productive with my photography & hopefully to learn Programming

    I purchased the 2.26 Octcore 12GB Ram & 1TB + 640GB

    i been using it for 2 days, its been a dream, i haven't been able to tax the cpu's at all yet even playing games (quake live & TeeWorlds) or exporting 300 pictures with aperture

    its a great machine

    only annying thing i have had with it its starting having a buzzing noise randomly. after reading the interwebs it sounds like the power adapter cable is hitting the fan every so often.

    Here it is

    Not that it matters, but I think your Samsung is a PVA panel, since that's what Samsung manufactures. Just FYI.

    coo, i'm looking to get that HP monitor to replace my 22" CRT pretty soon. and when did mac pros start having a lighter colored apple logo than the case? on my '06 it's darker than the case color. maybe just the angle/reflection it was taken at.

    The 2009 is nice.. BUT.... I prefer the case of the 2006/2007/2008. The new build feels "cheap" and "cost reduced" compared the it's older siblings...

    Has anyone else seen this??

    My door needs to be popped/snapped in on the upper left corner... The locking mechanism is a step down... As is the design for the screwless OCE backplane cover...

    Grats on the new machine, I just picked up a 2.66 quad myself. Going to use it for gaming in windows 7 and testing in OSX for work.

    Lovely set up (reminds me to clean up mine…), but why is your tower facing away?
