Looks okay, nothing earth shattering though. Bid out of the loop with
Graphics cards... is the NVIDIA GT120 and GT130 any good? IT seems to be
a bit low-end.
I'm not (hopefully) gonna be replacing my Mac Pro any time soon but I
have got to build another games rig because the Mac Pro can't cut it at
the top with a single GeForce 8800GT any more.
I still stand by the fact that Apple woulkd eat 20-30% of Dell and HPs
market share if they released a semi-competitively priced, games
oriented system below the Mac Pro. A rig with SLI or CrossFire and twin
PCIe x16 2.0 slots and 2 hard drive bays and a single optical drive in a
nice aluminium case.
