Okay- mac pro quad core 3,1 12 gig ram on board, new 2 TB hard drive, evga /nvidia GTX 680 video card, has bluetooth 2 (I believe- don't know about BT 4, though) . Doesn't have wireless yet, but will by next week. Mountain lion is installed on it and it comes with a Samsung 24" LED monitor S24D300. DVD drive is good, too-Hitachi DVD writer, not stock Optiplex. Comes with Keyboard and mouse.
Agreed. I see stockfish 3.1's go for 400-500$ and you've got a few nice upgrades.. the 680GTX is awesome (and I have one too). 1GB or 2GB PC flashed version? think around the $600-$650 range is a good price.

Yeah---my magic Mac (tm) 8 ball says about that---no more than $700. The card is an evga one-non-flashed 2 Gigger mac one, I believe . Got it when I got my new(er) may and decided to swap 'em. Am waiting on a wifi card and will install that when it arrives. Shouldn't be super, super hard, I hope. will have to magnetize the screwdriver and remove the hard drive that's in there first just in case. Very good light will help a lot, as will a gentle, kind touch. This will be my first time doing this---hopefully not the last , but you've got to start somewhere, I suppose, and it'll be an experience.
