Halo everyone, So, here goes: i wanted to buy a mac pro and a display of about 40 (<) inches, but then i found out the mac pro was unfairly over priced. I, then, set out to find out which set of hardware would be best suited to Mac OS 10 Leopard (and eventually Snow Leopard and so on!) I have a budget of about 2200 Euros (as of now 2735.7 USD (according to Google)! ) but if i have to spend this much of money then obviously i am going to buy a Mac Pro and save me all the trouble, but if it is somewhere around 400 euros (500 dollars) cheaper than the original Mac Proi then i am going to go for it! The following are the things i would be looking for in my Machine! * I want to have 16GB ram (extendable would be great but not required), * 2 TB of Harddisk (no externels please! i want them to be inside the trunk! ) * A powerful enough graphics card that can drive upto 40 inches of display! (i am planning ot buy a samsung TV or LG TV, and use it as my monitor, some comments on this would also be more than welcome! ) * I want to have 8 cores of processor (i got the idea from the original Mac Pro) * WIFI * Gigabite LAN * bluetooth (but i can use dongle also, so . . .) * i am going to use it as my personal pc so i dont need any RAID support! * I want to install a true copy of Mac OS 10 Leopard on this dream machine because i want to give some credit (money) to apple too! so that means, i dont want to have to install iatkos or Kalyway or leo4all . . . on this machine! * I just need to find out if it is worth to go out and buy every single piece of hardware to make a might machine or is it better to trust Jobs on this one, and buy a ready-to-rumble Mac Pro ? Please reply in detail! and sorry once again for my inablity to use the search form of this forum! MfG Ali Syed P.S. i am a student and as all students am short on cash, it would be great if i could save some bucks on my new mac pro!
