    So I'm toying with the idea of making a Hack Pro and I want it to look as stock as possible (no dremmeling the back I/O)

    I was wondering if it's possible to get the exact type of motherboard that Apple uses with the proper port configuration so i can simply plug it inside an empty Mac Pro case?

    What motherboard would be compatible with the back I/O ports so I don't have to cut a giant rectangle behind the case for? And how much would it cost?

    I already have the rest of the parts for a new computer. i7-860, 4gb ram, hdd, dvd, gtx 260 gfx, and an antec 550w psu. Would the i7-860 be comptable with the server class motherboard that I'd be getting?

    Did you try searching online sites for MP bits?
