Hi, after college I intend to do graphic design and web design. I am looking into buying a mac pro. I understand they are super powerful, and I would holding off to see will there be a 2013 model. I have a gaming PC getting a bit old and was thinking off selling it. To put the money together for the Mac Pro. I know that Mac OS X can run Windows through Mac. In theory can a Mac Pro run like a gaming PC.

I would wait until June to purchase a Mac Pro, because it's rumored that they will be refreshed then. I say wait, because if the Mac Pro is refreshed, it will get better graphics options. Currently, you would be stuck with a Radeon HD 5770 or 5870. Those cards aren't bad, but I can't justify the price of a computer whose parts haven't changed in over two years.
I'm sure that if you wait until around June, the Mac Pro will be refreshed and you'll be able to have graphics like the Radeon HD 8770, 8870, or possibly even the 8970 (these cards haven't been released yet, but should be released most likely next month or in April).
