GPU options are 1-4 GT 120 512MB cards (also known as 8500\\9500GT's), or a single 4870. Insane how they charge you $300 for a 1TB drive too.

Edit: Lets not turn this into a Mac vs. PC thread.

Oo... I have a feeling you're right.

I'm having second thoughts right now.

So you can put... four 8600GT's in there?

Err...

Edit: 120GT = 8500\\9500GT, GT 130 = 8800GS\\9600GSO.

nope, that is the gt240.

The gt120 is probably more like a 9400gt... and they are charging $150 for each one you add


Also, anyone think it is strange that they are not offering any workstation cards, considering the intended use of the Mac Pro?

Don't bash their 1TB drives. Mac hard drives last way longer than PC hard drives. I bought a hard drive once for a PC and it died the day I got it. My friend has a Mac and has had the same special hard drive in it for 17 years!

edit: You can ask him if you don't believe me!!!

why do you think they cost more???

You get bad units, you should know that.

Having slightly better reliability is NOT worth triple the price. Not in my book.

Nvidia should release some kind of a conversion chart so we know what each of their new products is a rebrand of.

And no, I don't hate nvidia, I just think this rebranding thing is getting out of hand.

I can't believe the amount of dumb that was in this post.

For the record, there is no difference between a 'PC' and a 'Mac' drive, they can use the same kind of drives interchangeably. Reliability is in the hands of whoever manufactured it. Apples drive is the same drive with $200 worth of markup.
