Hey guys, I managed to rescue a G5 for $100 a while ago (score!), but am as of yet not sure where to go from here... The Machine Specs are as below: Xserve G5 2005 model 2x2.3ghz G5s 2.5gb ECC DDR400 RAM (came with) 128gb Corsair Force 3 SSD (my spare parts) 1.5tb Seagate 7200rpm HDD (my spare parts) Radeon 7000 VGA card in the PCI slot (stock video card) Combo Drive (came with) Leopard 10.5.8 I know I can run 10.4.3 with the Quartz Xtreme hack. In this day and age its not really a viable solution to anything much. Even then it was buggy and didn't really do its job leading to a lot of people disabling it. It's not a RAM issue, the activity monitor reads 2gb Free. What I am wondering is though, is whether there is another way to get some better video performance? I've done my research, the Geforce 6200 PCI edition seems to be the highest card that will run, but flashing one is another matter, or finding one that is flashed. Going back further the ATI Radeon 9200 Mac edition works and is a drop in replacement, but that won't really solve my problems. Is there any other way to hack Quartz Extreme onto this Mac? I've had my share of issues in trying to resolve this. I even went as far as to install Debian and loaded up Ubuntu from a Live CD which really was not usable, the Apple drivers even without Quartz Extreme make the Xserve more than usable where as the Open Source Radeon drivers really are the epitome of coders poking around in the dark and are not much good for anything, particularly on a slower machine. I'm running out of ideas here, I don't want to buy a Radeon 9200, or Geforce 6200 and then be stuck in the same position I am now, but without Quartz Extreme this is really taxing the CPU even when I move windows around because the CPU is having to do the majority of the work with only Core Image activated. TLDR: Is there anything better than the Radeon 7000 in my Xserve G5, will I see any improvements at all with a GPU upgrade even if its not Quartz Extreme compatible? Or can I even enable Quartz Exteme on this machine?
