    Hi all, hope you are all well.

    I have a Dual 2.7 GHz PowerPC G5/4Gb. I am going to shove in an additional 4 in to make 8gb & have the std. ATI Radeon 9650.

    Apart from the obvious memory upgrade I am going to do, do you have any suggestions on the very vest video card (what I will get from it) & on getting the most out of this bad boy? Oh, & I have about 1.4tb of free capacity, so no worries there.

    As usual your comments are not just welcome but revered!:D

    I dont know much about mac graphics cards but you could get Raptor 10k drives for startup and applications. And a faster optical drive, that could help. Maybe add some cards, 5.1 audio?

    I have a similar system with a Radeon ATI X800 XT video card in it, and let me tell you, it made as significant a difference as adding 3 GB of RAM did (so doing both really made me stop and smile!), maybe more with some software.
