Default New PC

Just ordered a new Mac pro with these spec's

Two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
8Gigs 800MHz DDR2 RAM
Two 1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s Harddrives
and one NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB

My question is, the RAM comes in a setup of 4x2gig sticks....would it be better to order just 2x4 gig sticks? Pics when it arrives!

i dont think a Mac is a PC. (those commercial where they are like "Hi, Im a Mac" "and I'm a PC")
i dont know anything about mac except that they dont have much games to play on....
other than that, if its a PC, then the 2X4GB ram is better because it lets the memory controller work easier.

I don't recommend getting any pics from the inside. From what I've heard voids the warranty.

A good friend of mine told me. He's knows quite a bit about computers so I figured I wouldn't have to question his information. Besides, I don't really care for Macs so I just kind of laughed at the idea and didn't bother researching it.

Your friend doesn't know what he's talking about.

Default Re: New PC

so opening a mac doesnt void a warranty, yet opening a pc like HP, and stuff actually does void the warranty?
