    I'm upgrading the processors in my Mac Pro 1,1 to a Xeon 5160. I've been looking on eBay for a deal and I've seen ones that say "SLABS" and ones that say "SLAG9." What is the difference between the two? Does it matter which on I get?

    In general, it doesn't matter. All steppings do work in 1.1, you can even mix them.
    SLAG9 is latest stepping rev. and (according to some people here) it has little lower power consumption when idle.
