Mac OS X This helps reduce the number of erase cycles, which are limited for solid state memory, and provides for more efficient data writes and less moving data from one page to another.

But if you want to, SandForce will let you. SandForce began as its own company in , was acquired by LSI in , and has been part of Seagate since First generation SandForce controllers are not fully compliant with the SATA specification and are incompatible with the Intel Haswell processors used in some and all Macs.

The Quicksilver and Quicksilver used the same modules. The FireWire model uses PC memory in its 1. With the Power Mac G5, Apple greatly simplified things. The 1. All of the other pre-dual-core models use PC memory, making it easy to mix and match memory modules among machines.

Except for the 1. A couple weeks ago I picked up 12 used Power Mac G5s for free, and I already had five at home, including one dual-core machine. One of these has no power supply I bought a single CPU model for less than a used power supply for my dual processor G5 would have cost me. But except for the three 1. Further, I can readily swap drives and video cards, giving the fastest machines better configurations. In my book, the fastest machines should have the most RAM, and I now have two 2. I have four 2. Again the newer machines will have more RAM installed than the older ones, probably 2.

One 7,3 will have a Radeon , the other a Pro, and one of the 7,2 machines will also have a Pro. The other will have one of four GeForce FX video cards.

That takes care of 6 Power Macs. I have two 1. All of these will have GeForce cards, leaving me with three 1. Or, more likely, I will ignore the 1. And the RAM from the 1.

One of those was a power supply donor, so nothing can be done with it. I will have one working 1. I partition each drive, giving one-third of the space to OS X This lets me choose between Tiger and the possibility of using Classic Mode and Leopard, which is more modern in several ways. Two 1. I will have two 1.

Once I have everything configured, I plan to sell the 1. I would prefer not to ship if possible, but if you really have your heart set on a Power Mac G5 and are willing to pay to ship it…. Thanks guys for the replies! I'd like to play a few games on this machine, so a better GPU is in order!

All I can find is the meg one. It must be some rare beast or something. Because the chances of finding a cheap meg are slim. Doesn't that mean that it's "not as good" as the meg Quadro? I tend to think the bigger the better, but maybe I'm wrong? I didn't know the cord was so important. I never poked my head inside a G5 so I didn't know about that.

Good to know. Thanks again! Some of them are for PC. Is there a quick way to tell which one's which? Again, this card seems to be available in PC flavour too, what happens if you put a PC card in? Bang, clatter, clatter, clatter? I'll try to photograph mine tomorrow if I remember to. It's in the G5 Quad I use occasionally at work. Interestingly enough, since OS X You just don't get boot screens.

Ive got a GGT in my "main" G5. I believe it was the best BTO G5 graphics card you could buy. For the old G5s, perhaps. Edited January 29, by Bolle. Any guides to show where the flash ROM is located and what to buy for a replacement? You will need the PCIE power cable found on ebay cheap. Didn't know that either Edited January 29, by BadGoldEagle. Mac Pro vs.
