I'm about to order a new 3.33GHz 6-core with Radeon 5870 for $2943 (corporate discount price). With another $168, I'll have 20GB (2+2+8+8) RAM in it, which is 8 more than I have in my current MP. I thought I was going to have to spend at least $1000 more. Admittedly, I'm getting less than I thought I would get, but what I am getting is still more than enough for me. Coming from a 1,1 what's there not to like?
