    Hey guys! My original Mac Pro was the model 3,1 or Harpertown. Awhile back I purchased the radeon 4870 HD, but it appears Apple only sent me the cables to hook the card up to the 3,1 mac and not the 4,1 mac.

    Can someone post a picture of the 2009 equivalent cable which will work with the 4870? Thanks..

    I figured it out.. at first I was panicking there thinking that I needed new cables. The ones from my 2008 fit nicely.. I guess its a standard pcie booster cable.
