Hey guys, I recently bought a 12-core 2.4 GHz Mac Pro (back when Amazon had their price glitch). I was planning on gradually upgrading it over time, and at the moment, it is not badly in need of any upgrades. My upgrade plan had been: 1) RAM 2) video card 3) internal RAID, possibly with SSD 4) processor upgrade (the processor is definitely not the bottleneck at the moment) HOWEVER, it bugs me that Intel is dropping the chips that I will eventually need to use to replace my 2.4 GHz processors. I am worried that come time to replace the chips, I'll be out of luck. My question is this. Does anyone have a sense as to how difficult it will be to purchase these processors in a year or two? I am finding 3.46 GHz hex core chips for as low as $858 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Xeon-...sor-/221298788099?pt=CPUs&hash=item33866f8703 I'd rather not spend the money right now, but am wondering if this is going to become impossible to find in a few years. Any advice based on prior discontinued Intel chips would be helpful. Thanks.
