    I've got a stack of old PC and Mac hardware at home that all works. Recently I started using a G5 dual core (PCI-E) for photo editing again and it works really well. In fact, I am highly impressed. I also have a Sawtooth G4 AGP with a Sonnet CPU upgrade that I use for various things that only work on Tiger. I had a rummage around on a cupboard and found an old Athlon 64 PC an AGP slot motherboard, as well as:

    ATI Radeon X1800XT 256MB AGP
    Sapphire Radeon X1650 512MB AGP
    BFG Geforce 8600GT 512MB PCI-E

    I have a newer PCI-E equipped PC too.....

    So, here's my question: Is it possible (I've looked all over the web!) to flash one or all of the above PC cards to work in my Macs? I don't NEED to do this per se at the moment because all Macs work and I'm not using them for graphics work, but it would be NICE from a geekery point of view. ;)

    To all your cards: Sorry, but no!

    For AGP, end of line for PPC-flashing has been X800/850 on the ATI-side and 7800GS for nVidia. For PCIe x1900 for ATI and 7800GT/GTX for NV.
