    Guys/gals

    I was given an old Mac pro as a gift but it wont turn on, i need to identify the model. I cant really determine the year or identifier(e.g. mac pro10,1) without turning it on, which is the main problem. I got this photo from the back. What i'm trying to do is buy a new harddrive, upgrade the ram. I know the ram and HDD don't require me to know the model as i could pull out the actual hardware but I'm trying to determine whats OS i could run based on the year. From what I've read, 10.7 is the newest version.

    Thanks for your help.

    Serial is G874437QY8F, but that site, I’ve tried before and gives me 4-5 different models. I think this is the 2x quad core 3.0ghz. I’ve seen the HHD is. 320gb and X1900 Radeon gpu.
    Thanks for the help.

    Probably someone who enjoyed ripping / burning DVD collections. I did the same... I have thousands of them stored away... Now replaced with high capacity hard drives connected to my media centers and TV's
