    Hi,

    I got an 15' mid-2008 MacPro and I'm looking at maybe upgrading it to get better performance out of it.

    First of all I would like to replace the HDD with an SSD. Not knowing a lot about SSD's, but I understand that SATA2 is what the machine supports, so any suggestions on a disk that would be good (improve speed and reliable). Would like to replace it like for like so a 250GB disk would be preferred.

    I've look at bit at the samsung 840 evo and Crucial M550, but I'm not really sure what I should look for. Except for price.. :)

    Any other things I should consider? CPU/ GPU / RAM?

    I've looked at RAM and might get 8GB, but have to check my current usage first.

    Thanks for your help.

    Cheers,
    Josh

    What a perfect match to this 370" 4k TV screen.
