After many months of looking I finally purchased a MacPro 4,1. 
The first thing I did after receiving it was update the firmware to effectively make it a 5,1 MacPro. 
Next up I wasted no time and had to upgrade the CPU. Staying with a single cpu for now, I went with the x5690 so that when I do decide to upgrade to dual CPU I will already have one, and the maxed out one, at that.
After the CPU, I installed new RAM. I held off on the ECC memory since I had normal ram already, but upped it from 8GB to 16GB.
Next, Install was video card, of which I also had already. Sapphire R9 270x. 
Drives of a 120GB SSD, 1TB & 2TB Drives, respectively. 

Put it all together and I am MORE than happy for a while! especially considering I was coming from an AMD FX8350 build..
