    Hey,


    I am in the market for a Mac Pro. I’m excited.

    I have up to $2500, no more, to spend on this machine. After reading this thread…

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=771019&highlight=nehalem+speed

    …I think the right machine for me would be:

    2008 Mac Pro, quad core, high clock speed (3.0?)
    Raid 0 (SSD?) drives (perhaps SSD, I love raid 0 configurations)
    Video Card of medium speed… (which is…?)

    What do you think?
    And where do I find a good 2008 machine? Ebay? In that case, what do I search for?

    Thanks,

    r.
