    Hi All,
    Long-time lurker, I registered to write this. I have been following the Mac Pro section for a long time to help me decide what mac I should get. I finally purchased a 2.66 Quad Xeon Mac Pro with 6GB RAM, 640GB HDD and the Radeon 4870 card. Thanks for all the advice and suggestions that I gleaned from reading this forum.

    I got it through the student developer account. I am an amateur photographer, doing digital and a bit of MF film. I also got a 1TB WD Caviar Black from Newegg.

    Thanks again, for all the information and advice!

    Yup, I still can't get over the processing power available. Had a small issue with the sound settings not sticking after sleep, fixed it now.

    I'm seriously considering taking the plunge and investing in one of these pro towers. I got a chance to play with one which belongs to a classmate and the experience was pretty epic. :eek:

    I'm still saving up for a Mac Pro too. The Quad Core. How is it so far? Doing amazing I'm guessing. :D

    It is pretty fast, the only time I notice the CPU is when I play youtube videos on Safari, goes to about 13% and the occasional TM backup. I haven't had much time to play around with RAW pictures yet, (deadlines at school). In a couple of weeks...
