Ok, I do most all of my coding / video / picture / 3D word on my dual 1.8 G5. I riding this puppy as long as I can but its really starting to show its age for my high end work, and I never have enough disk space. Anyways, I'm replacing it with an octo mac pro around September. I also want to get an Xserve Raid, but don't know if its the best choice. Right now I have about 2TB of stuff on so many external drives and I really think I could use all the space I could throw at it. Is there any reason to buy a new one direct from apple instead of a used empty one off ebay? Is there a cheaper something that I could stuff as much into? Also I wanted to turn my G5 into a server. Personal file transfer, getting started with web coding. Is there any reason to not use the G5 or an Xserve, instead of the Mac Pro? If not I think I could sell the G5 for some cash due to its custom graphics card.
