    Hi
    First post. I have been out of mac for quite a bit(1ghz g4 pb) and I have never owned a mac desktop, but recently I got a dual 533 DA powermac, and I've been looking for giving it a bit more of everything. So I grabbed 1.5gb of sd-133 and a evga 7800gs that I have flashed. I also picked up a dual 800mhz g4 from a QS, my question is, do I need to do the 12v 4th post mod due to the fact I'm already using a dual cpu? I was unsure as most of the posts I've found deal with adding a DP daughter card to single G4 macs. Also if that is the case does any one know of a good picture of the 12v mod , the one I found was very small and I couldn't quite see what he used to attach the 12v line to the post.

    If this has been covered then I missed it in my searching and I am sorry. Basically I'd like to be able to run wow at low with decent frames, which I think this upgrade would allow me to do, let me know if you think otherwise, I'm aware a 7448 upgrade would make difference but tbh they are just way to much money to dump into an aged Mac.

    Thanks
    Kevin

    You still need to do the 12v mod.

    Here's a picture.
