    i been on windows since i was young i got my macbook must be about 6 months ago.

    then i got this system below
    Q6600
    2x2GB Ram
    400GB Seagate
    7600GT
    1000W PSU

    built it myself for games (still waiting on 9900GTX) i will be keeping this connected to my 40inch HDTV for games

    im looking to get the mac pro because im fed up of various problems im getting with my hardware

    mac pro its for internet,emails and general usage and slowly take over as my gaming pc.

    i may need windows depends on how well games run on mac (css mainly) but i play a lot of games

    budget - max £3000

    Will new mac pro be out by then?
    esimate would do.

    i can't decide to buy 2x24 or 1x30 for the mac pro ( probs buy soon)


    any rumours on new mac pros or upgrades?

    They will most likely come in early 2009 when Nehalem is introduced.

    Not sure about your post as a whole but Counter Strike:Source is relatively low graphics game...I can run it on my Macbook, even.

    On that note, though, 1.6 is better than Source :p

    Well, what do you do besides gaming?

    Driving a 2560 x 1600 display is going to strain most graphic cards when it comes to newer games, whereas a 1920 x 1200 resolution is more forgiving.
