Bob makes a great point. If you want to go the fully supported route that's a great way to go. The 2008s with a good GPU can still be a decent setup. The prices have never been better and those are so easy to work on yourself. Not that I've ever had one of mine ever break down. If you don't care about thunderbolt, it's still a good machine.

That said, an eight core original mp booting from a third party 64 bit kernel and upgraded GPU can run mavericks with a geekbench score of 10500 and decent fcp x performance. Not bad for a nearly eight year old machine. Is it worth the time? Not for me, but it is possible.
