Hi guys, I joined to get some advice, specifically on whether I should purchase a Mac Pro 2008 and figured this thread will be able to give me your experienced perspectives: SPECS: Mac Pro 3,1 (2008) 2x2.8Ghz Quad-Core (Total - 8 Cores) 16GB Ram 1TB HD Running OSX El-Capitan ATI Radeon XT2600 256MB Video Card PRICE: $550 which includes a 23in Apple Cinema Display (the thicker, older, aluminum one) USE: I am considering it as my 2007 iMac died on me a week ago. Will be used as a family computer, mainly for music, Web, e-mail, and a little bit of Reason 4. Do you guys think its a good-buy based on what I have posted above? All your comments are much appreciated!! Cheers! Sorry, I also wanted to ask whether running OSX El-Capitan would be okay, or would a downgrade to Mavericks be recommended?
