Actually, I forgot the second CPU and the GPU. So the same configuration as the base Mac Pro on newegg adds up to $2700. Which makes the Mac Pro cheaper than building your own.

However, there's no doubt that you can build a cheaper machine using different hardware especially if you buy cheaper CPU's. But you have to compare the prices with equal hardware.
