Is this a good deal on an 8core?
Hi guys..not sure if this is a PC only board (i.e. no Macs) but since the question I'm asking is specifically about the INTEL CPU I figured it would be ok...
I have the choice of a macpro 8core 2.8ghz for $2000 (just the tower 2gb ram, HD, some software etc)
or macpro 8core 2.2ghz for 2300 but with 6gb ram, 2 hard drives (one of which is 10k rpm raptor for the OS)
is 2.8ghz that much of abig improvement over 2.2ghz...will I notice an improvement in these Xenon chips for hardcore music production type applications?
The other thing is that 2300$ 2.2ghz 8core is 2009 version the 2000$ 2.8ghz is about 1.5 years old though it is macpro 3.1 (not sure what 3.xx the 2009 version is)
Which one is the better deal?
