I'm at a crossroads as I'm sure many of you are or were now that you've seen the new redesigned mac pro within the past coming months. I'm sure many won't be making the upgrade and will be sticking with their current pros. I for one definitely won't be buying the new pro but would in fact rather upgrade my current 2008 3,1. Memory for this machine seems to have gotten quite expensive (or at least IMO) being the older dated ddr2 memory which isn't as heavily manufactured. That and my pro's speeds are starting to show it's age. I'm worried as if maybe the time to sell/upgrade is now? while my 3,1 still has some worth before the new pro drops? or to wait until the new mac pro drops then everyone will be selling off their older 5,1's or 4,1's having an influx of supply making them cheaper to pickup as well as they will be considered some what dated once the new MP drops is an idea as well? There are a couple of options I've considered. Buying a 4,1 and do the efi hack, upgrade cpu, etc. Not sure how feasible all of that is? or just forget that and go for the 5,1 (which might be a cheaper option than the stated previous) and max out the memory (32gb) while it's still readily available and somewhat cheap although who knows how much longer before ddr4 drops? as well as minor little upgrades, ssd(s) etc, whatever else that would be recommended. Or just say ******* it and build a hackintosh haha So in a nutshell, upgrade from 3,1 to 4,1 or 5,1 (leaning more towards 5,1) drop in ssd(s), max memory, etc What is the best solution? I would love to hear some opinions and thoughts!
