There's a sniff of an 8 core 5,1 possibly coming and wondered what your thoughts were and I know theres a few vars who post here. I could possibly take the 4,1 route like I do for many of my clients but for my own system I do not want to count the turns doing my own hex upgrades! Looked on ebay etc and the prices vary so wildly it's quite hard to give it an accurate valuation because its in essence a totally maxed out 3,1 and there aren't many there I can find. It's minus all my upgrade parts: Power extension cable, USB 3.0, GTX 680, Solo X2 and SSD's are all moving home so I will be left with: MP 3,1 - 3.2 8 core 32 Gb RAM 800Mhz, 1Tb HDD, 8800GT and Yosemite installed. I'm thinking as high as 850 for a punt on gumtree cos I have seen them sell with less of a spec than mine. The faster ram as we all know isn't cheap and there is the option to list 2 pairs of the 4Gb modules on ebay and adjust my pricing down but I would rather sell in one go. Plus I have quite a bit to fork out to upgrade the 5,1 such as 12 cores and 6 ram sticks - as the one I may have my hands on has 6x1gb and they will all have to go. I couldn't possibly work with only 6gb! If anyone asks I will not ship abroad - I need my box for the 5,1 which doesn't have one and they do not travel well without one. Truthful comments such as you're dreaming as always appreciated!
