I posted this in a different thread but i thought it was pretty cool so i wanted to let the people who think the mac pro is a rip off compared to a custom built PC with the same specs that they are wrong. Using Newegg, which is arguably the cheapest and best service for computer parts around, i picked out all the Mac Pro's components or components similar. I couldnt find the 5150 on Newegg though so i used the a different site for that Heres what I found: http://www.markonecomputers.com/Default.aspx?pid=49526F34-3F4B-4E81-9BC5-35E5FDA7B4AE - Processor 712x2 = 1424 shipping 21.74 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814145130 - video card 93 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16822144701 - Hard drive 80 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16827131352 - dvd drive 145 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813121042 - mother board (not as good as Macpros but basically as agood) 519 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820141210 - ram like 80ish could probably find better deal apple keyboard and mouse - 80 dollars free shipping OSX 130 free shipping To build a pc with the mac pros performance (i included apple mouse and keybaord as well as OSX) facotring in the cost of shipping it would cost you roughly $2505. not only that but i thing i missed a few things (case, cooling, etc.) that would jar up the price a bit. Newegg was also likely to have better deals i just didnt find but you can see how alike these prices are. Nice purchase to all you Mac Pro owners out there.
