My 2006 Mac Pro is getting a little slow. She needs an upgrade but on the cheap. I already have a perfect Hackintosh but I have no intention of selling, or retiring, my Mac Pro. I love it too much. Now to the rub... I cannot find any affordable 53XX [Clovertown] processors. They are old, by today's standards, yet their cost is sky high. I could build another Hackintosh or buy a brand new iMac for the cost of 2 Clovertowns. Ebay's cheapest fall into the $300+/each. 700-800 [for the absolute cheapest upgrade] seems insane to me. Prices seems to be going up instead of going down. Can someone please advise. TIA !
