    Sounds like fun.

    Just assembled a Core 2 Quad, 2Gb RAM, 2 x 500Gb HDD for a RAID 1, 19" LCD

    Now for the tricky part.... Vista :er:

    ..and perhaps more crucially at the moment, Vista drivers :banghead:

    Congratulations. Thats my next big purchase...save, save, save. Lol.

    Why not just stick with XP? It was my experience with Vista that it didn't offer anything but problems and a really pretty new interface.

    Nice specs though, should be a fine machine.

    Nice. I'm waiting for the Mac Pro refreshes before I order, but I hate not knowing when that'll be. :(

    Have fun with your new toy! Before they were launched to the public, I got to learn all about taking them apart and putting them back together in the studio in Cupertino. It was exciting to see the product and to watch in develop AFTER release, too.

    I used to see Steve Jobs drive into the parking lot at work in his fancy sports care and think to myself, man, I filled that guy's gas tank about 10 times.

    It'll be worth the wait, I bought a 2.66 Mac Pro the day they came out, love it. I wouldn't trade this computer for the world man. I'm truly attached to this machine. I will never sell it, no matter how old it gets. Ever. Not for $50,000...

    well...not for $3000.
