Hi,Looking for advice re: a good graphics card to run a 30" monitor on a dual 2 ghz power pc G5. I've heard of problems with the older G5's and Radeon x1900 xt graphics cards. Any info or suggestions?I've been reading the great things about the NEC 30" monitors here and it seems the way to go. Anything at all re: the Dell 30" monitors?thanks,dan
You'll have to look at which model you have. They were equipped with different PCI slots (PCI, PCI-X, PCI-E). Compatible video cards are dependant on the PCI type.You'll find more info about that "issue" here: http://www.macintouch.com/readerreports/po.../topic4027.html
I use an old G5 model and your seems to be the "late 2005" model. From the specs, the GeForce 6600LE offers one DVI and one dual-link DVI ports. This setup should - theoretically - be able to handle a 30" and a 24" display.
Found a GeForce 7800 GT on ebay for $155 which should be a big improvement over the 6600.
This card used to be the "hot" upgrade, I remember Mac users flashing PC cards. $155 is a good price.
