Mackenzie, the Dual 2.7 G5 will be officially delivered this morning. :D

I'll shutup about this eventually...until then bear with me. :rolleyes:

Congrats!

Funny thing; today is my last day at work and my publisher is coming to our office. I know he is going to ask if the computer is his and why I'm taking it with me.

"No, Jack, that's my $3500 cardboard box, your's are in the art room"

It's gonna be a late night tonight.

You do realise that we're all going to feel very, very let down if you don't post a pic or two when you've got it all set up. ;)
I'm leaving work two hours early to get to work on it. Have to stop by Home Depot for lots of cable ties and cable tie mounts, though. :D

A nicely appropriate 'tar you have affected for the new arrival, iGary.
Weren't you also considering getting a nice new desk to go with your new baby? Not that the current set-up is tough to take, but those dual monitors might not leave enough room for the laptop stand and all those iPod docks.

The damn desk won't fit. The new displays actually leave more room, but I'm going to IKEA on Saturday to check out my options. It'll be crowded and tight in my little den office for a couple of months until I get my own office space. :rolleyes:

I'll just be glad to get it. Pulling the trigger on 5 grand worth of (albeit write-offable) stuff gave me a coronary (third single biggest purchase in my life next to my condo and car), but I actually slept for the first time in three days last night. :eek:

Just looking forward to my last day, and getting out of here. Been at this joint too long.

I did pull the cinemas out last night and double them up. Sweet is all I can say. I'd definitely recommend this route over a cingle 23".

Mackenzie is currently in Crofton, MD about 15 minutes from here. :D

I think you should try stacking the displays on top of each other. It'll save you heaps of space but it might take some time to get the balance right.

So is Mackenzie going to be a Bastille baby? I always get confused with the different time zones. Also, should it be spelt MacKenzie? or even Mac Kenzie? ;)

Hey, congratulations iGary

Will your new baby wake you up at 3:00 in the morning demanding to be fed CD-Rs? :D

You've go the UPS all charged and ready to go, yes?

Don't let your enthusiasm get the better of you -- boot the machine and run it STOCK for a while before you add the goodies, just to verify it's 100% good; not that I'm telling you anything you didn't already know though ;)

You got me again iGary. I was questioning the title, but wasn't sure. Certainly would call the arrival of a dual 2.7 G5 a blessed event. Will be anxious to hear how the actual arrival turns out. :D

Leaving in 40 minutes to take her home.

Busy night. I sold my old system and have to get it wiped and cleared off, too.

Hopefully I'll have pics soon. :D

Thanks to everyone for putting up with me. I've been dreaming of a system like this since I was 13. :D

This thread has made me realize how loud my biological erm... technological clock is ticking! :eek: I'm not a spring chicken anymore, you know! :eek: ;) :D

Gary, I hope this new addition to your family brings you and your partner many years of happiness. Cherish those moments, from its first teetering boot-up, to the day when it runs PS/CS faster than it's old man ever could, till the day when, running Leopard, it starts to teach you some tricks you never even thought of. Each of those moments is a precious diamond, which may seem only uncut and unpolished today, but will sparkle for many years to come.

:D

hi osiris,

how is the 2.3? i'm looking at one 200 times a day at the online store. your setup is pretty much what i'm looking for.

except the GPU. why did you choose a so powerful GPU?

is it needed for gaming only or does it make sense for PS, surfing, imovie, iphoto and such stuff as well?

p.s.: what monitor are you using?

Thanks, mkrishnan!

Just got my old system packed up and ready to give to the new owner tomorrow and just fired up the new G5 and the monitors.

No dead or stuck pixels in the monitors, they are absolutlely beautiful as is the machine. Just ran an Xbench of 270 on 1GB of RAM, waiting for the other 3GB to get here.

Love the wireless keyboard, the wirelss mouse is not as sensitive as I would like it to be, but I'll get used to it.

Booted up fine, no problems.

I love it.
