    I currently have a 4,1 2.26 octo core and was reading about the OWC cpu replacements (I'm thinking for my needs the quad 3.33 is a better bet). Do any of you have first hand experience with dealing with them for this?

    Thanks!

    It would probably be less expensive to sell your current rig and buy new/refurb.

    cheers

    yeah...i gotta run the #'s. Changing from a dual 2.26 to the single 3.33 is $899

    It does look like a nice turn-key upgrade, but I don't think I could justify the expense. At least with a 4,1, you should be able to sell it fairly easily. I have a 4,1 quad 2.66, and for me just to upgrade the processor is around $1,300. Right now, I can live with the 2.66, but some day I hope the prices come down.
