They are all over the place. MDD (not MCC) stands for the model name 
"Mirrored Drive Doors" and PM stands for Power Mac. Here's a good place 
to get one with some free 256 MB of RAM thrown in:


Scroll down. It's on the bottom center. A lot of mail order houses have 
been caught flat footed with a lot of FW800 inventory or even old MDD 
inventory from last year and are still trying to sell the same or 
similar config for $2400 or more.

The MDD boots in 9 and includes 2MB L3 cache on each 1.25 GHz processor 
unlike the newer FW800 model that only boots X and has only a 1 MB L3 
cache and still sells for $2400 at mail order houses.
