    Sorry. A bit of a nub to the forum. I actually havent posted on the forums in years. I came across a 2006 Mac Pro 1,1 and I would like to rebuild it. I found this thread regarding the CPU Upgrade for the 1,1 very helpful.

    Can someone show me a thread regarding an overall rebuild of the other components to have a Mac pro that is usable in 2017.

    I don't think there really is a thread like that. If you have specific questions someone might be able to answer.

    The 2006 MP 1,1 is already quite usable in 2017, with an up to date operating system.
    Add some ram, get a better video card, install an SSD as the boot drive and then read this link as an aide on installing a newer 64 bit operating system.

    This message posted from my 2006 MacPro...:cool:

    Thank you very much for your reply. I will go ahead and do the needed. Do you happen to have a list of recommend RAM, VIDEO CARDS, and SSD's.

    I noticed the compatible CPU's from compatibility thread.
