    just wondering what i can do to soop up my 2008 mac pro, not that i need it atm, but for a year or 2 down the track....

    i am planning to do a little Win7 gaming down the track when i am not working with my Wacom, so just wondering if i should get another 8800gt (and Sli them) or pull the 8800gt and grab a 5870? (obviously much more expensive)

    Also, down the line, is the 2.8ghz xeon in the 2008 macpro pin moddable? if so, any idea how/where i can read about this?

    I also have a 60gb ssd drive ready for the OS, to give her a bit of a speed boost, but was wondering if i need to stick the apps that i use also on the ssd or is a normal 7200rpm drive fine?

    any hints/pointers would be great :)
