    I have settled on the following MP configuration and would very much like your input on my choices.
    CPU 3.0
    500 gig drives in bays one and two
    Nvidia 8800
    ACD 30inch
    Not sure about an Airport card as it will be connected with CAT5
    second optical drive
    Apple Care

    I am wondering if the 2.8 to 3.0 is worth it, but might be good for resale value.
    And if Apple stock drives are problematic ... I figure I will keep this box for about two years.

    I read that it is a good think to populate the memory board so I could do that with memory from OWC and wondered if I should get hard drives from them as well.

    I would appreciate your input. Thanks..

    Your bang for the buck is the 2.8 not the 3.0 Don't buy Apples 500 gig drives. Way to much. Buy them else where. I bought the Samsung F1 750gig for $149 I can understand that you want Apple to install the second optical drive. The Airport, well for for $50 why not. You don't know what is in the future. I bought my Ram from OWC.
