    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?

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

    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.
