Default Re: Can I upgrade my Mac Pro from PT9HD to PT12HD...?

I agree with Barry. I upgraded one of my 8 cores to a 12 core then was able to find a second 2009 Mac Pro 8 core on eBay for around $700 and will be upgrading that one shortly also.
If you are patient you can get a really good deal one and once upgraded, you will be surprised at how fast these old machines are!

You can buy an 8 core tray and put it in your computer.

They're pretty easy to find on eBay. Here's one is an example.

I'm not sure how it is where you are, with these computers come up fairly regularly on craigslist, where you can buy the whole computer around the same price as this tray.
