    I'm in exactly the same boat as you and have the exact same config ordered (except apple mad a mistake and sent me the wrong config, so I have to wait for it to be delivered and then send it back... muppets)

    But in the meantime was looking order more ram like you....


    So i looked at Crucial who have them but for me it works out more expensive than apple.
    For example (i'm in Ireland) :

    Apple: Mac Pro 1gb (2x512mb) €275 (edu price) but free shipping

    Crucial: Mac Pro 1gb (2x512mb) €272 + Shipping = €288

    So Apple would be better place to buy it. However for 2gb Apple charge a lot more €625 compared to crucial €470

    Apart from the display, that's the exact same order as mine!
    I'd be very interested to hear from you how long it takes you to receive it from order to delivery, as I'm now on week 5, and it's only just been dispatched 2 days ago! :)

    woah. So shipping times are approximately a week or so with the X1900XT now?

    Sweet... I think I'm heading to the bank tomorrow to get the loan approved so I can order this week...
