Lastly, one regrettable note for my international readers, I list prices in USD, dates Month/Day/Year, and measurements in imperial as I live on the mainland of the United States and thus also incurs some of the bias of an American English speaker. Prices differ vastly in foreign markets, and unfortunately, generally, the US is remarkably cheaper for Apple products and some hardware upgrades. Any buying advice will reflect the bias that is implicit to someone living in the US. As far as measurements, I apologize for our measurement system based on ambiguous associations with tangible objects like a child would use. I fully admit the metric system is superior. Temperatures in this guide are expressed in celsius as computer thermals sensor default to celsius.
Bits vs. Bytes - You probably know this one by heart: There are 8-bits to every byte. For this guide to avoid confusion, I use bytes instead of bits when discussing all things bandwidth-related, even though networking favors bits and local storage favors bytes. It's pretty easy to mistake bits for bytes as it hinges on capitalization. 10 gigabits-per-sec is written in shorthand as 10 Gbps. 10 Gigabytes-per-second is written as 10 GBps or 10 GB/s. Converting bits to bytes means dividing by eight. 10 Gbps = 1.25 GB/s (or 1.25 GBps). Download speeds are expressed by operating systems in bytes per second, which confuses consumers as internet connections are not. For example: A 100 Mbps network connection has a maximum bandwidth of 12.5 MB/s.
Not all PCIe slots are the same. Since its inception, there have been several updates: PCIe 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0, with the very first 4.0 PC motherboards demoed in 2018 and shipping in many PCs today. Each iteration of PCIe radically increases the speed by doubling the available bandwidth. Also, to add a minor bit of confusion, different chipsets have different amounts of total "lanes," measuring speed for a PCIe slot. PCIe slots are not all equal speed; thus, the total lanes are distributed across the PCIe slots, usually giving favor to one or two ports for maximum speed. In the Mac Pros (3,1 and above) case, all have a maximum of 40 lanes, and thus, the lanes are pre-distributed among the PCIe slots. Since not all PCIe slots have the same amount of lanes; thus, they are not all at the same speed. The amount of lanes a PCIe slot has access to is expressed numerically: 1x (1 lane), 2x (2 lanes), 4x (4 lanes), 8x (8 lanes), and 16x (16 lanes). The maximum speed of each lane depends on the version of PCIe a computer has. A 1.x PCIe 1x slot has access to 250 MB/s. Thus a 4x slot has a maximum of 1 GB/s, and an 8x slot has a maximum of 2 GB/s, and so on. Each generation of PCIe effectively doubles the speed of a lane. A PCIe 2.0 lane is 500 MB/s and PCIe 3.0 lane is 1 GB/s. Generally, PCIe speeds are expressed in bytes, not bits. A PCIe 2.0 16x speed (8 GB/s) would be 64 Gbps (64000 Mbps). In this guide, I will use MB/s and GB/s instead of Gbps and Mbps, as transfer speeds are generally expressed in bytes, not bits.
SATA2 still hasn't yet been fully saturated even by performant 3.5 spinning disk drives. Even the fastest current-gen 3.5 drives, such as the Western Digital Black drives, are well below SATA2. Thus, the four internal bays are still quite useful for Hard Disk Drives and still workable for SATA SSDs. For those looking to sacrifice optical bays, OWC made a series of multi-mounts to go inside the dual 5.25 drive bays for 3.5 and 2.5-inch drives. SATA HDDs are still the best value price-per-gigabyte, thus useful archiving/large media/backup.
New Mac users may not be aware, but built into macOS is an exceptionally powerful backup utility that not only keeps a backup of your entire boot drive (and any selected external drives), it also has the ability to undeleted files and resurrects old versions of files in addition to being able to restore your entire computer. For my fellow developers, it's essentially version control (like Git) but for your entire computer. I highly encourage all users to use Time Machine. Unless you do not care about the data on your Mac Pro, Time Machine is the single best upgrade you can add to your Mac. Simply put, if there's any data you value on your computer, it is the best investment in this upgrade guide I can recommend.
Strictly speaking, from a data backup strategy, Time Machine is one of the best methods for backing up due to the data parity and ability to restore from previous backups making it far more effective than RAID or cloning an HDD. You can attach multiple HDDs for multiple Time Machine drives. Each drive is a separate backup with file histories, whereas RAID1 requires double the drives and only works for mechanical failures, not data loss, and cloning loses parity soon as new files are added/modified/deleted and not performed hourly. This isn't to say RAID arrays or clones of HDDs do not provide value, but RAID is not a backup strategy, and drive clones are frozen states but bootable, whereas Time Machine must be restored.
When buying a display, it's also important to consider color-space coverage. Color spaces for the unfamiliar are standards of color ranges that can be represented by a display, projector, or printer setup. Monitors may brag about its color space profile. Not all color spaces are equal, some representing a lot fewer colors than others. The important thing is that sRGB is a dated standard from the 1990s, based on CRTs rather than any clear standard. It severely suffers in the ability to represent shades of green and some blues. Today, Apple prefers DCI P3 for its monitors, a standard that vastly improves the range of colors available to a display (roughly 45% of the human eye can see as opposed to the 35% of sRGB) and designed for digital cinema. Adobe RGB is also similar to P3. Both represent a much wider gamut than sRGB. Selecting monitors based on color spaces can assist you in finding a display that's more suitable for photo editing, color grading, capable of more range in the expression of color, and feels more "Mac-like". The wider the color gamut, the wider range of colors a display can produce. 350c69d7ab
