Upgraded my Mac

Recommended Posts

I have a Mac Pro, purchased in 2017.  6 Core, 3.5Ghz, Dual 3GB video cards, 256 SSD, 16GB RAM

 

I bought an external enclosure that accepts internal SSD and HDD drives connected with Thunderbolt 2.  Inside I installed two-1TB Samsug SSD, one 2TB Samsung SSD and one 6TB WD HDD.  I'm using the 6TB for Time Machine backup.

Then I removed all the RAM and installed 64GB.

The speed increase has been significant in almost every aspect.  Total cost was about $1,200 but compared to $6,000 for a new Mac Pro, I'm happy.

 

HERE's the Enclosure
