    It's not bad, Especially since it comes with the two displays. You could do a lot worse.

    What year was the computer manufactured. I have a set up very similar. Macpro 1,1 that was released in 2006. It is only 32bit. I will not be able to use mountain lion if I felt liked it. I still love my computer. Just be sure that it lines up with all your expectations.

    Looks like a 1,1 Mac Pro. I'd pass on it, myself.

    How can ya tell?
    I'm just curious so I can figure out what model i'm looking at in the future. Is it the superdrive spec? Other than that mine pretty much mirrors the listed spec.

    The superdrive is the only differing spec between the 2006 and 2008 models, and the description by the OP.

    I would still double check that before buying. The 2008 model would be an awesome deal. If it is just the 2006, it is a great deal, but it has the 32-bit caveat. I would jump on it either way, especially with the displays...

    Edit: just checked craigslist, in case this was local to me :) it is not :(

    Nevermind. I was faked out by the 640GB HDD, which only came in 2009 4,1 Mac Pros. They must have swapped that into an old 2006 1,1 Mac Pro.

    Personally, I would pass on it.
