    My Mac 5,1(4,1 updated) has upgraded Xenon cpu, 48Gb ram, Pixolas modded psu, Radeon RX580 gpu, ssd, upgraded Wi-Fi & Bluetooth card, Gigabyte Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 card and pci-e NVME boot drive. It runs latest version of Monterey.

    Is that mad enough?

    very nice mate, ideally was hoping to see a 5,1 with dual 6 core 3.63ghz xeons and a 590 as i was highly considering one of these currently but might build a hackintosh but i love the og mac pro case. have you dual booted it sucessfully into windows and gamed on it. those 580 and 590 are such good bang per buck im so tempted but want macos as my main setup.

    Good riddance. Wish I'd done it about a year ago.

    Holy thread revival!

    I've recently bought the M1 MacBook Air, absolutely love the thing, battery life is insane with amazing processing to go with it.

    Not here. Nothing against Macs, and they're nice kit, but I'm too set in my PC ways now and can't be bothered to get used to yet another interface and way of doing things. Besides, too much invested in software, and a few essential things don't have Mac versions.
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".

    Not dual booted it in this configuration or gamed on it as Monterey was really tricky to get installed on the PCI-E adaptor card and I had to use Open Core Legacy patcher to get it work. However I do dual boot my hackintoshs via OpenCore and both the Ryzen & Intel Hacks work almost perfectly (I think Sidecar doesn't work but I dont use it so don't care).

    Just bought one of the last Intel i7 iMacs as my experience of the M1 and Studio is, over priced and under built. For the sake of the business I need to put an M1 on the reception desk but I've been struggling to pull the trigger for months. Slowly coming around to Monterey. Bigsur was such a big suck I wouldn't let it near any of my own systems.

    What makes you feel this way? I've got an M1 MacBook Air, it's excellent.

    Base M1 Mac Mini i'd say is pretty good value considering the performance available. Also Monterey sucks big time compared to Big Sur but both are poor compared to previous versions imho
