    I'm in the market for a mac pro and I'm looking at a 2.66 mac pro 4-core or a 2.8 4-core mac pro.

    What is a good used price for either of these machines?

    Have you taken a look at the refurbished 2.8 GHz single processor, quad core? It's US$1,999.

    You can add the second processor down the road but the price for the CPU and heatsink don't make it worthwhile even now.

    is there much difference between the 2.66 4 core and the 2.8?

    The single 2.8 GHz quad is faster. Not to mention the motherboard plus EFI64 is superior as well.
