    Hey Guys

    I just got through installing a 5770 in my MP 1,1 and I'm glad to finally be able to play some games with it. However, the framerates in Starcraft 2 are a bit low compared to the barefeats benchmark for my system ( http://www.barefeats.com/wst10g7.html). Is it necessary to do an SMC reset or any other configuration change after installing the 5770?

    My system:
    Mac Pro 1,1
    Quad 2.66
    10.6.4 Build 10F569
    ATI 5770 HD

    Do you have the graphics update Apple released a while back?

    Yep. I also downloaded it from apple.com and re-installed it post 5770 just to be sure.
