    I'm in start of upgrade MacPro 1.1. I will get pair of 5355 processors.
    In future I'm interested to try Yosemite on this computer. Did any of next PC GPUs can work in this Mac (or with upgrade to 2.1) with or without flashing. Boot picture with apple logo is not imprtant to me. Experiences? Other GPU recommendations (in this price range)?
