Thanks for all the advice!
UPS just stopped in and dropped off my GF's new tower and monitors. After about two hours of having the case open, setup and calibration I am quite impressed. Thanks Rusty and Night she is VERY happy. I was apprehensive about apple but this is one robust machine.
One 3.2GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor
6GB (3 x 2GB) of 1066MHz DDR3 ECC memory
1TB Serial ATA 7200 rpm
18x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
ATI Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB GDDR5 memory
Added 1 512 Crucial SSD, 6TB in RAID 1, 16GB RAM. We took the 1TB drive out of the Apple and tossed it into an extra NAS housing. It has two 27 in apple displays (which I want now). Any other recommendations for upgrades?
Might we get an idea on the price you paid for said computer plus upgrades?
Refurb on all the Mac items. $2100 for the tower and $840 for the two monitors. SSD was an extra I bought, I think I paid $230 for it. HDD's were $180 each (3x Caviar Black 2tb). RAM ran $120. 4x 4gb sticks.
In total $4800 or so with shipping. Not my proudest moment in computing but she is in love with it.
