    Enjoy. My pro is great after doing the ugrade. And an SSD makes it stupid fast for a seven year old computer.

    I just installed a 3Tb (3, 1TB drives) stripped RAID in it. It made a huge difference!!

    Nice. That'll be in the works as I move closer to production this summer. Need more ram first.

    Going from 4 to 8 cores of the same speed won't improve anything unless your apps are beefy enough to use all 8 cores. The 3.0GHz gives an every-app improvement in machine speed.

    Yeah I'm sure but I'm on a budget. Its about $75 for 2 2.66ghz or $300ish for 2 3.0ghz

    In due time when they drop down in price I'll pick up a pair of 3.0ghz
