How to make your Mac faster
You want it faster?
I exchanged the quad 2.8Ghz xeon for a 3.33Ghz sixcore, put in an 240 GB accelsior card as startup disk (about 650 Gb/sec speed), made a raid 0 out of the 4 harddisks for the photo's and than 32G memory.
Now that is a speed demon! I'm sure it cost a pretty penny though
