    Hello everyone, I picked up a jem at a computer recycling facility. Its a Mac Pro 2.66 qx. It is in great shape just missing riser card (Ram) and video card. Can I perform any tests to see if the computer is still good before i buy the riser card and ram + a graphics card. When I turn the computer on, the power button blinks? Anyone have any info that can help me. This would be my first intel based Mac, since ive always used an dworked on only PPC

    Thanks

    The pro without ram will not post and hence you wont know if it works or not. But IMO just think of the place where u got it and I believe you will get an answer to wether it works or Not
