    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_produc...ce627&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.
