and the power mac fan's i thing have no idea the is no big deal a bout power mac for the money they spend on one of this you can build so much more please tall me if I'm wrong
Its very important to get your terminology right, Power Macs no longer exist, they were made with Power PC CPUs, the last ones that were made was the Power Mac G5, the high end mac towers today are Mac Pros which have anywhere from a single quad core Nehalem based Xeon to two six core Nehalem based Xeons in them so its a pretty big range but at 5k you arent getting much in the way of full system potential since it only comes with a 5770.
Unless you are doign something very specific that can use up all those threads you would be much better off with a 2600K based system with a good graphics card for about $1600 than $5k for the Mac Pro.
As for bulldozer benchmarks, i can find you some if you want, but im going to need about 30 minutes to draw some up in paint because there are no real ones out there, nor will there be until much closer to the launch date.
