    I purchased a Mac Pro for a client recently and got the chance to upgrade the guy to 16gb of Ram and 3tb of Hard Drive Space! Crazy Unreal...

    Here is my cat, Cat 5e inspecting the package to make sure nothing got damaged.

    The Cast of Invader Zim approve of the Almighty Ram

    Here are all of the parts outside the (for now) virgin Mac Pro

    First board of 8gb down, another to go...

    Each stick of 2gb came in its own box, you can also see a bit of my other cat, Qwerty

    Here are the four SE16 WD 750gb drives calling out the the Mac Pro

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I bought this refurbished and it came with a nice upgrade an x1900xt! Not bad, not bad at all

    I currently have it running Apple Hardware test to make sure everything goes fine, however 16gb takes a very very long time to test

    :eek: That's insane! What is this client going to be using the Mac Pro for? It's gotta be something intense with those specs.

    Nice job! I'm definitely jealous.

    Super computing I'd say. Too bad you didn't go all out and buy 32 Gbs (it supports 64, but they don't make 'em) and 4 Tbs with lots of other things I can't even imagine.

    I thought about talking him into 4tb just to see if I could but no... He had to wimp out :rolleyes:

    I guess he also could have used multiple video cards to knock it up a notch even though he doesn't need them.

    As for what he is using it for, I am not sure exactly, He told me to build him the most badass Mac Pro I could (within reason)

    Ah, well, if you'd maxed it out you'd prolly get a letter from the FBI wondering what you were doing with such a machine... ah, for a world without money I long.

    I can think of: editing uncompressed 2k film.
    He´s probably just playing World of Warcraft. :D
