Hello

I found on the macrumors that you suggest some cards for flashing. I found here in my country this card

http://smartcomputer.gr/view_product.php?productid=10007&idcat=27&idsubcat=100&idsubsubcat=307&key=b33bfb092942087fad2f57a7445ce627&secref=efdc8c6cd28cd0adc7b52e75638eb36f

Part Number HD-487A-ZWFL (is there any special flashing guide or rom for ZWFL models?)

Can i flash this card ? I have a Mac pro 1,1.

other cards that i found

and one connect3d

http://www.plaisio.gr/Computers/Hardware/SVGA/Connect3D-4870-SVGA-PCI-Express-1GB.htm

Can u tell me what problems can i have with the flashing cards. What can play and what not?

Also i dont understand the 2,5gt/s and 5gt/s limitation. Can my flashed card run on mac pro 1,1 at 5gt/s or this limitation is for newer models?

My display is a NEC Spectraview Reference 2690 with hardware calibration via via DDC/CI

Thanks

Nick

The difference is pretty meaningless, honestly.
