I have been sitting on the sidelines waiting to see if the mac pro was going to get updated. While sitting here, I have been eyeing the incredible price drop on the new intel quad processors for PC's. I priced out a windows rig tonight on new egg and I could build a box with a 8800GTS GPU, a Q6600 and a P35 motherboard with a raptor 74GB os drive and two 250GB raidO hard drives with a 650w PS for about 1700. I have never tried the mac OS but have read its great. I will be ding mostly video editing with it. I am wondering if I might just bite the bullet tonight and order the 2.0 with an edu discount and call it a day.. but i'll tell ya.. that wiondows rig is tempting i'll tell ya.
