Well, I currently have a 2010 Mac Pro. Dual Quad Core 2.4GHz (8 Core) 6 GB RAM (Multi tasking is somewhat slow) 3-4TB's Hard Drive (No space available) ATI Radeon 5870 1024 MB (showing its age with applications/frames) 2 Superdrives Mountain Lion My current system seems to be somewhat slow. I have 2 options since the new Mac Pro will be out soon. Option A: Do a complete overhaul of my current system. (The cost of this would total about $1,800-$2,000 with the new specs below) Dual Quad Core 2.4 GHz (8 Core) - Keep the same 16-24 GBs of RAM (Upgrade from 6) 1 Boot SSD Drive (256 or 512 GB) - Upgrade OS to Mavericks Upgrade to 3x 2TB Hard Drives Graphics card Radeon 7950 (upgrade from 5870) Upgrade 1 Superdrive with a Blu-Ray Drive for Windows Partition Add a USB 3.0 Card Option B: Would be to get a new Mac Pro Cylinder ($3,700 + $700 for External Storage Array) 3.5GHZ 6 Core 16GB RAM 256 GB Flash Storage Dual AMD FirePro D500 I'm not thrilled about my current Mac Pro not having Thunderbolt/Thunderbolt 2 Ports, HDMI, USB 3.0, or AC Wireless. However, the upgrades I would perform would give me all but Thunderbolt ports and the cost would be less. However, the better question is ...for the price of the upgrades would it be better to get the new system if the performance would be far better. So would you recommend I upgrade my unit to at least increase performance or just get a new system? Any thoughts?
