    Hey guys,

    I have the chance to buy a cheapish Mac Pro 1,1. Just wondering what are some good CPU upgrades I could add to this. I currently have a 27" iMac (11,2) and looking to really see a sizeable in performance if I was to buy and Upgrade the Mac Pro.

    Thanks.

    I upgraded my MacPro 1.1 to X5365 3.0 GHz "Quad Core" Xeon processors. Couldn't be happier with them... pricing for these are much lower these days so there's no reason not to get these.
