    Very good news to hear that you can upgrade the CPUs yourself from more options than the stock build variants from Apple.

    Awesome. I thinking it will be about 5-7 years before I get one of the latest Mac Pro's (used)...and then I'll have the option to upgrade the cpu.

    Give it a miss Nick. We will be too old to remember the article let alone change CPU's over.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
