    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum and it's been quite a while since I upgraded or built a machine so please be kind !!!!

    I've had my current mac pro from new, it's an early 2008, it was the top spec in it's day:
    • 2 x 3.2 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon
    • 26 GB 800 DDR2
    • NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512
    • Apple Cinema HD Display 23"
    Apple won't let it upgrade any OS beyond El Capitan

    I use it mainly for PS, but not on a regular basis.

    I was wanting to know if I can upgrade any hardware such as motherboard, CPU etc to make it a more up to date spec?

    Thanks
