    I have decided to get a new Mac Pro to use for my new office, i decided to use VMWare instead of another computer which i will need. I lost a 5kg (5 more to go), i did well on investments and i feel good.

    Anyway i got myself a Quad MacPro with 8GB or RAM and all the goodies that comes with it. I was setting it up, i wanted to get everything done fast so I was playing WoW to make sure it works, was in VMWare installing updates, burning a DVD, watching a movie and had 6 apps open in OSX and 3-4 in VMWare. The things that amazes me is that i was using 30% on my RAM and 25% of my cpu :). I could have not do that with any other computer on the market.

    The MacPro scream(add 10 more m's)ing fast.

    Oh yeah man, this is the fastest computer that I have ever worked on. I have the 3.0 Quad Mac Pro with 9GB RAM (8GB OWC + 1GB Stock) and it's screaming fast like you mentioned.

    I do a lot of processor intensive work (motion graphics) and this thing screams in CS3 Production Premium

    The OP said he got a new quad-core Mac Pro so it's obviously the high end 3.0GHz model.
