    Hello,

    I have a oldie MacPro 1.1, 8-core @3ghz & one 30 inch monitor + a plasma 1080i tv on second dvi.

    Its time to upgrade my video card, since i cant play any of the new games with this old 1900xt.

    I am also running Snow Leopard 10.6.1


    Which card should i buy?

    Also, is there a easier way to get it working without flashing it using a PC ? I been following netkas's blog post, but it seems very out dated and it would not work in SL.

    Yeah he was probably so excited at the idea, of upgrading his video card, that he choose to stop looking and wanted direct answers to himself... you have to read buddy, I personally joined this forum and then researched on this site for a few days before finally purchasing my card... the answers are all there, you just have to sift through posts.
