I have a MacMini and a MacBook Pro and I switched to the Mac about 2 years ago. I haven't used my PC much since I switched but I have been thinking about upgrading my PC for making it a gaming system only. But I have also thought about buying a new Mac Pro Tower and making it a dual boot system with Mac OSX and Vista on it as well. Because I do a lot of photography and I am trying to get into video editing with Final Cut Express HD. Which the mac min is a little too slow for it. But the only reason I am using the Vista side of it will be for gaming. Has anyone here tried to do this? How does Vista run and what kind of video cards / accesorries do you use for the Vista Gaming side of the system?

Thanks,
Van

G5 is a power pc mac, rather than an intel mac. It'll only run windows using Virtual PC. That won't do anything for your gaming and I doubt it'll run Vista. Do you mean a Mac Pro?

I would recommend a mac pro tower.

Think about it..

!6 gigs or ram

16 tb hard drive space

You can max the heck out of this sucker.

Yeah I meant to say I am looking at buying the Intel Mac Pro, not the G5.

HUH!?!?!? Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked According to Apple it's only 3TB, it has 4 HD bays so I guess 4TB is possible....

But 16TB? Where did you get that?

I worked on a Pro tower the other week. The company I was visiting had upgraded it to the maximum specs and dear Gods it was FAST!

If I had £12,000 handy I would build one myself! Razz

Wait till the Intel 8 cores come out!
Apple seem to be getting the fastest intel chips first too - go Apple!

At work, I get to play with HP ProLiant servers.
Currently the fastest we have is the 4 x Dual core 8222SE AMD based ones, but I am just about to get some 4 x XEON quad cores @ 2.93Ghz.

And there are credible rumours of the 8 x AMD Barcelona quads coming out in Q2 2008.

I have a MacPro with a 30" CD. My wife is a graphic designer so she uses it most. Now that CS3 is available, I would highly recommend it. It was dodgy running CS2 while waiting for the upgrade, but now, it's amazing.
