So, you want a sweet machine with the horsepower of Apple’s Mac Pro, but want to run Windows? That’s no problem. Thanks to Microsoft letting people actually buy their software separately you can build whatever you want and put Windows on it. The PC might not look as cool as the Mac Pro, but it will be as powerful.
The Microsoft Nerd compiled a part list for building a Windows PC with equal processing power as the new Mac Pro. The price is actually slightly better than Apple’s too, but surprisingly not as much as you’d think. The only real differences are the lack Thunderbolt ports and Bluetooth. Other than that this is a very similar build, minus the trash can-shaped case.
Check out the full part list here. Do you plan on building a PC to match the power of the Mac Pro?
