    How much is this Mac set up worth ?

    Ok guys, bit of a mad 1 !! Whats this lot worth (about 18 months old ) ? :-

    Apple G5 twin 2.5ghz cpu's, 8gb RAM, 2x400gb h?drives, ATI X850 Graphics.
    23" Apple cinema panel.
    Final cut 7, Logic pro 7 and all the usual software (garageband and the like) with all the expansion packs fitted (about £2000 worth of software apparantly), dont know much about Mac's but this sounds like a beast especially as i'm into my songwriting and Mac is what everybody says to get for music !!

    Sorry, never even heard about that. That looks pretty cool then. I wonder why they never used liquid cooling again?
