    Well - I've been noticing random coloured pixels at first - which then progressed to random lines appearing all over the display. I no expert but I suspect my graphics card is on it's last legs....

    Can anyone recommend a replacement?

    It's a 1st Gen Mac Pro (Dual 2.0 I think..)

    I don't do much that requires a top end card - no gaming / motion / compositing etc.. Just basic Photoshop FCP etc..

    Thanks

    You need a Mac specific card, one for a PC will NOT work.

    That's great - tempted with the first - though it looks like it only runs under Leopard - Will have to upgrade... been meaning to so hey!

    I think I might take the card out and give it a good clean first - may be just over heating.

    Thanks for your reply
