Being a powermacg4 user I was hit with the slow performance of LW and Mac. Lack of performance can be lack of $$$$ :-) So I decided to buy a PC. Not being the one to build a box or search for weeks I bought a HP wx6000.

I opt for the bare set-up. once it comes in I will order a second 2.4gig cpu and 1gig RAM to start. I have a Sun D130 with 3x18gig 10K scsi drives to add. I'm not to sure about the nvidia quadro4 200 NVS card. I was looking at replacing it with a ATI Radeon 9700 Pro. So if anyone have advice for a Mac user moving into the PC please share.
What is folks opinion on HP wx6000 workstations? What should a Mac user expect from PC version of LW beside more support? Also anyway to get a discount on a second dongle to run both platforms at same time?
Thanks in advance!!!
