I am looking for a new computer for family and work use; and recently got an offer for a Mac Pro with the following specs for under 4k. I wonder if it is worthwhile to get it since I already have the monitor and keyboard from older desktops.
Two 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Harpertown” processors
2GB memory (800MHz DDR2 fully-buffered DIMM ECC)
ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics with 256MB memory
320GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s 7200-rpm hard drive1
16x double-layer SuperDrive
I do run a lot of CS3 and LR2 for large image files and I am looking for something to last me for a while. Hope to get some useful opinions here. Thank you.
