    I finally pulled the trigger on my '09 MacPro... Looking forward to the unboxing.... When it shows up LOL..... On to the specs:

    Mac 2.66 Mac Pro(w/4870 & next-day shipping): $2467 incl. tax/shipping.
    3.33 Core i7-975 CPU (upgraded from a 2.666 Xeon for $800 from an ebay reseller)
    12GB Ram (upgraded from OWC for $480)
    Ati 4870 & Nvidia 7300GT (something I have on the shelf for now. Slow for 3rd display)
    1x640 WB Back for OS, 2x1TB WD Black. 2X2TB Green(1 external for time machine)

    Hope to see this box together and running by the end of the week. I'm planning on taking a lot of pictures and putting together a how-to video.

    Should be a great upgrade from a '07 2.0 Quad!

    Thx!
