Build a screaming-fast Mac Pro

You can—and should—familiarize yourself with the other materials on this site before buying a new Mac, but this page condenses it all down to the essentials and makes it easy to assemble a screamingly fast Mac Pro that will prove ideal for nearly all users.

Order memory and hard drives from OWC

The ideal setup for most users is 12GB memory, one solid state drive (SSD) for boot, and five matched hard drives (four internal, plus a spare). For details, read this.

The SSD yields performance and frees up all internal drive bays for your data (details). You can omit the SSD and boot off an internal drive or external Firewire 800 if you prefer.

To get the right parts, click the link that matches the Mac Pro you ordered:

Any speed Quad-core

Any speed 8-core

If you need 24GB of memory for your 8-core, use this link:

Any speed 8-core (24GB)
