    I just picked up a 1,1 for next to nothing with the 7300 and I flashed a 5570 for a performance bump. It seems to be a great deal my question is there any mini displayport enabled video cards for the 1,1? Looking for something similar to the gt120, Looking for a single slot mini dp enabled card.

    Anything out there short of flashing another 5570 single with mini dp?

    The Official Apple Radeon HD 5770 has two Mini DisplayPorts and works perfectly with the Mac Pro 1,1.

    I too have a Mac Pro 1,1 and was looking into the exact thing, but I think I'll be sticking with the 8800GT until I upgrade to a newer Mac Pro (upgrading the processors to dual Quad 3.0's first which puts it in the same league as the 2010 single quad Mac Pro)

    EDIT: Oh, single slot - I have no idea. There are DVI to MiniDisplayPort adapters out there that are powered via USB. Might try one of those?
