Default Re: Is a used 2008/9 Mac Pro Quad Core a good investment?

Much depends on which cpu you are looking at. My 2007 quad 2,66GHz Mac Pro was barely a 20% boost from my previous dual core AMD setup(AMD 6000+). So IMHO, an 8 core gets a yay, but the bottom of the line gets a pass(from me). Have you considered building a Hackintosh? $1500 would build a pretty stout(and NEW) machine Food for thought
