Not sure how you post the screen capture thing, but I got 10432.
2009 Quad 3.33GHz
It wouldn't let me do 64-bit, since I was in demo mode.

Show us your number

If you will go through all the work to upgrade why not go to 12 core 3.46? They should slip right in there.

how much are the dual 4 core processors going to set you back?

you can get the 3.46 6 cores now for a little over 1000 each, they are a bit pricey for 2
I will be looking at upgrade in Jan or Feb of 2012
2 things may cause me not to upgrade
new processors from intel in revision 6.1 or no available TB pci card by 2012

Now I use 3 firewire card reader to download files from my cards it would be a bonus to have TB in the computer i could upload 140 gig of files in less than 30 min VS almost 45 min on FW800

Right now i'm really happy with 8 core.

32bit version. I'm not paying for geekbench.

Excellent for my needs! I can't stand hot laptops and hot iMac's. Long live the Mac Pro!!
