    Need to find a used PowerMac Dual G5 1.6 GHZ. I need the old style pci slots so this is my fastest option right? I need old style PCI slots as my Pro-Tools HD rig does not support newer style PCI slots. I search the web fairly regularly for these but can only find single processor 1.6 GHZ G5's and as far as I can tell that wouldn't be much of an upgrade from my Dual G4 1 GHZ machine I am currently using.

    Thanks in advance for any advice on where to look!

    There never was a dual 1.6, only a single 1.6. The Dual PCI G5's came in 1.8, 2.0, 2.3 and 2.7 GHz speeds.

    The 2.0 and 2.3 speed was also used in the post October 2005 PCI-e G5's so the speed alone is not definitive.
